Re: neutering with a heart murmur.

Just for your possible peace of mind, the shelter has speutered stray dogs with heart murmurs of various grades, all of them survived their operations; none were seen by a cardiologist before surgery or had additional diagnostics. Obviously I'd want to get as much information as possible for my dog ...

Re: Help? Broken tooth. *cry*

Hahahahahah, oh Brina!

That's exactly the look. And they both have those big caramel soulful eyes plus the goofy lip; the contrast is so ridiculous.

Re: Help? Broken tooth. *cry*

Thank you both. He's a pretty silly dog already, and now his thick upper lip gets stuck on his lower canine frequently since there's no upper canine. Oh dear. It's definitely extra goofy. Heh. He's doing well, he's pretty pathetic looking when I have to flush the sutures with CET rinse since food ge...

Re: Help? Broken tooth. *cry*

As a follow up- that was a very stressful weekend. The root canal couldn't be performed that day. The pulp kept bleeding. So they would have needed to do it in 2 stages of surgery. Then when they were cleaning his only remaining upper carnassial (it had looked OK previously on X-ray, and they also t...

Re: OMG! Don't let Pat Cook get an Aussie!

Funny story, Pat Cook just took Happy for a trial to see if he works out with her household. Cross your fingers for the little doof ball, maybe we will be seeing him High in Trial next. I saw on FB and was wondering/hoping it was her! Fingers crossed for sure! How awesome is that?! Sent from my MB8...

Re: Help? Broken tooth. *cry*

Well... he's at the vet. We brought him earlier today and he'll have the procedure tomorrow. They're doing x-rays anyway for the canine tooth root canal, and so will look at an old, partial slab fracture of another tooth and compare current x-rays to the x-rays of this tooth with the x-rays I had do...

Re: Just phishing

Thanks! Ordering that book! I kind of don't care what I do as long as I have MUCH less public contact. I used to work in a huge corporate litigation firm and I might be down for that again. Same exposure to the same icky morals/ethics as an ACO, but from about 1/10th the number of people plus better...

Re: Found another lump on Brina

Thinking of you both. xo

I know how these problem-prone-pets are. We'll have grey hair soon.

Please post updates. I love your girl, she (and you) are PBF OGs so she's gotta be OK.

What skill sets do you think a shelter worker/ACO/vet hospital has acquired that might be applicable in some other field? Dealing with all kinds of the public in volatile and friendly situations, lots of law enforcement contacts, a variety of warrants, assisting with criminal investigations includin...

Re: Help? Broken tooth. *cry*

Very informational visit-- met w a faculty vet, resident, and a student. All voted not to extract the tooth. One was pretty emphatic on a root canal instead of the partial pulpectomy. The other vet was more open to both but said due to his age she would probably do a root canal. If he was under 2 an...

Re: Help? Broken tooth. *cry*

Yeah, I was up til midnight researching dental specialists and thankfully also called UC Davis veterinary teaching hospital. They had a dentist there at 1150pm and she talked to me for a while. We discussed root canal vs partial pulpectomy vs extraction. I'm currently hoping we can do the partial pu...

Re: Help? Broken tooth. *cry*

I think Nichole had a root canal done with one of her girls. Hopefully she sees this. Buddy fractured both of her bottom canines off chewing and needed them extracted. That was a year before she had 13 other extractions. So she and I are sending your handsome boy our wishes for a speedy recovery! Y...

Re: Help? Broken tooth. *cry*

Well, I just read about root canals and pulp therapy. His last extraction + dental was $1800 (though my vet discounted it to $1200 since I work at the shelter) so I am really worried that a root canal or pulp therapy will be double that. Oh man. Oh well. I got some $$ from Christmas gifts that was g...
