Hunter’s Dental Cleaning

Poor Hunter!!

Hunter had a dental cleaning today. The veterinarian pulled two small teeth and had to pack a pocket, at least I think that’s what he did. Hunter is still there. I have been without him all day. For that I can say, Poor Me!

He has to eat only soft food this weekend, maybe longer. This isn’t so bad. He loves his canned food. Nevertheless, I think he will miss his kibble. Usually, I mix the two. The canned food has a terrible name. I had to be convinced to feed it to him. But he absolutely loves/devours it. It’s hydrolyzed protein. I get it from the doctor.

Smiling with all of his teeth!

I pick him up in an hour and a half. They had to “put him under” to clean the teeth and remove the bad ones. It’s harder getting over the anesthesia than it is the operation itself — so they tell me. I know I’ve had one or two surgeries where that was definitely the case.

I need to brush his teeth more thoroughly. Of course, it’s not like he makes that very easy. He loves the taste of the toothpaste and he thinks it’s all playtime!

    1. Thanks. I try to be interesting. Hunter’s my best friend and companion. But there are so many other extraordinary bonds to speak of. Glad I can help even a tiny bit.
