I'm stink-free!

Poor Halo has suffered from bad teeth her entire life. It doesn't matter how often they're brushed, professionally often she chews on bones, etc.....she just simply has bad teeth. This isn't uncommon in dachshunds. She's already had several teeth pulled in her almost 9 years but it doesn't phase her one bit. Well, her mouth was getting pretty stinky and her teeth were in desperate need of a good cleaning, so she spent today at the vet's. She came through the procedure and anesthesia just fine, but poor thing has been totally out of it all afternoon and evening. She must not be swallowing her saliva either because her drool is slightly bloody, I'm sure because of the two teeth they had to pull.

The big dogs won't leave her alone (well, let me rephrase that....the big white puppies won't leave her alone) because I'm sure she "smells funny" from the meds and other various smells from the vet's office. So she's enjoyed spending time in my room on my bed in peace!

Aww poor girl, glad she made it through! I hate it when Moose is all out of it and drooling, it is like he is a zombie and it scares me a little every time!

Glad she has a nice time alone while she recovers from the teeth procedure!
Take care
Kisses and hugs

Aww hugs to Halo. I Willow had to have a toofie pulled out recently too. I had a big abscess in my mouth. I might need root canal therapy and a cap...we're just waiting to see what happens.

Hope Halo is getting some good rest away from those pups.

Oh poor Halo! So sorry you have to have "ouchy's" in your mouth :(
I'm glad you have a safe, quiet place to recover, tho.

Hi everybody. It's been a while... but you know how busy our parents get sometimes.
But I'm glad I'm here to send Halo a big kiss. Sorry you had to endure a dentist visit. My catsisters have done that and they're totally zonked afterward. A nap on the bed is a great way to recover, though. Hope you're feeling better.

Aww...poor Halo! Sending her lots of slobbery kisses and hope she gets better soon!

Awww, feel better soon, Sweetie! Dachshunds are prone to peridontal disease, unfortunately.

Awww sweet Halo, we hope you are all better at this point.

Out of all the health issues that my Zoe had, her teeth were perfect. Go figure.

Lots of Luv & Kisses
