Lucky fractured a tooth

Lucky's jaw appeared swollen last night. Husband looked at his teeth and there was swelling and some D/C so we went to E vets and they x-rayed and started some antibiotics. He had surgery today and they cleaned his teeth ,removed the abscessed one and scraped his gums. He is sleeping on his blanky right now. He has had a rough summer. We have antibiotics and tramadol for him. My boy is doing ok thank god and handled the anesthetic well. I think we need a charm or a St. Francis medal for him.

I can only imagine how stressful that must have been.
So happy to hear that he made it through the surgery and is recuperating!

Thanks guys for the support. Loneforce he is a very lucky boy. We caught before it caused him to go septic and he handled the surgery . He's still pretty out of it but we have pain meds and lots of soft food. just got to make sure he doesn't dehydrate and keeps his strength up.

Holy cow, you have been through the wringer! I will make a wish for him on my wishing jar for a speedy recovery!

Big hugs and lay some kisses on Lucky from me and G

He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion. - Unknown

Thanks Gator Bytes. I have to kiss him on the head between his ears cause he's pretty sore everywhere else. Jaw isnt swollen but they scraped his gums and he is so stiff.He's drinking but not eating and we need to make some soup for him.He went outside today but he's still pretty out of it. He does not like drugged.They gave him hydromorphine on Weds night and then the sedative for surgery.
