So Ghost had to go to the ER

I don't even know where to post this. So basically I noticed Ghost's mouth was gaped open and he kept pawing at his mouth so I called him over to me and checked his mouth and saw a STICK lodged horizontally in the roof of his mouth digging into his gums making them bleed. I don't know how he managed to lodge that in his mouth but he did. So I drove him to my local ER vet since I wasn't able to dislodge it myself without him shutting his mouth on my hand and yelping. They managed to get it out without sedation by cutting the middle of the twig and letting it fall out, which I would've done but I can't cut it and hold his mouth open at the same time. So yeah then we went to Taco Bell since it is right next to my ER vet and I may have given him a little bit of my taco. I also got him a year's worth of heart-worm preventative whilst there so two birds with one stone I guess? So basically I had to rush to the ER at 7pm over a twig lodged in my dog's mouth. Here he is present time under my desk begging for the rest of my taco and then an hour ago in the vet's lobby.

Sometimes having a dog is like having a toddler. Who knows what shenanigans will occur! Glad it was an easy fix.

This is exactly why I took him in ASAP. Didn't wanna risk anything worse happening such as it getting lodged in his throat or puncturing something.

Glad all is okay. Sticks can cause headaches for sure.

Ziva has had that happen several times. Fortunately I have always been able to get them unstuck at home. But gosh if it isn't scary when it's in there. Happy Ghost is ok and no major injury. Seems like Ghost knew it was taco Tuesday

Once upon a time, I had everyone inside in crates. It was winter time, and they sleep inside. So I heard bear bitching and moaning, and I wasn't ready to get up yet. And then, when I did get up, I went out there and she managed to get a marrow bone around her two bottom teeth and stuck on her lower muzzle.

I told her, "I'll take care of that." Then I let all the others out, one by one to their kennels and gave them food and water, threw on some clothes and ran her to the vet.

They were having a meeting in the lobby, and I was banging on the door, frantic by then. So the meeting broke up early, and the vet said, "there's a trick to these. She did something and got the bone right off of there in one piece. I was thinking anesthesia, power saw, stuff like that. Very happy that it wasn't worse.

So lucky to find it before there was real damage. A friend almost lost her dog trying to repair the gum that was peeled right off the bone. I hate sticks.
