Well Dageus has to have surgery and goes in for an operation on the 1st of Sept. In the mean time he's on a high dose of anti inflammatory tablets, along side pain killers for ten days. It's the tooth/gum at the very back of his mouth, vet also thinks there may be a bit of an absess there as well. Poor Dageus. :cry:
It cost me £110 this morning and I asked for a breakdown of what's to come, have a look at the list. I could weep, but it's for my boy.

Poor chap, that is very painful.

Oh dear, poor Dageus.  I hope the painkillers help him :sad:

No wonder he's been off colour poor boy.

Vet bills aren't cheap, we spent just over £2,000 on treatment for one of our cats recently, but sadly she didn't make it & was put to sleep when I took her for a post-op checkup.

Still, we did our best for her.

You thought it might be a tooth didn't you ? 
Poor Dageus, it doesn't matter what it costs, we pay it don't we !
God bless him, I hope the pain killers are helping him.  ❤

Oh, Raven - poor Dageus. I do hope he soon feels better. It's so worrying when they aren't well - if only they could tell us what is wrong. I had an abscess over a tooth once - absolute agony until the tooth cam out.

I think the antibiotics are kicking in as well as the pain killers,  he's not so miserable and is now watching what's going on around him again. It's a big improvement. Will be so glad when all this is over and he's back to normal.

Was the delay to allow time to get rid on an infection or lack of capacity at the vets? I'm guessing the first. Dentist won't usually touch a tooth if it is infected.

Vet said the swelling and infection had to go down before they could do anything.

klondike

Same as dentists then which makes sense. He'll be sorted soon with any luck.

Hope Dageus will feel better soon when the antibiotics kick in, nothing so bad as toothache if your a person or a dog.

I do hope that he makes a speedy recovery - as I mentioned, an abscess over a tooth is bloody agonising.
