Open wide

Last night during Barney's glamour shots, we noticed some swelling on the left side of his muzzle.
The guy only came with four teeth (it's a greyhound thing), but he's also had a course bark this week that almost sounds like he has been de-barked (he hasn't).

We rolled ourselves out of bed at 5:30 am so that we could be into the vet clinic by 7:30am.

Yup, an abscessed tooth. Poor boy. Antibiotics daily, tooth fairy Friday.

I love parenthood.

Oh, poor Barney! I wish I could give you a little kiss to make it better.

Poor Barney! My foster English Cocker Spaniel just had 18 teeth pulled. Whoa, this is not typical for ECS like it is for GHs. Don't know how she ended up with such horrid teeth! Hope Barney feels better soon!

Poor Barney. It's a good thing you spotted it early.
