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.

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.

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.

Try giving him some baby food, it might be a little less messy than soup if his mouth/jaw is sore. I had to give it to Pasta in a syringe when she had a vestibular episode issue and would not eat for close to a week.
