Cassie was due for a complete check up so i thought it was a good time to include her first dental cleaning.
The vet found two rear cracked molars. She showed me a video of them wriggling. No doubt caused by her chewing on a hard chew. No way to know how long theyve been like that. Ive thrown out all her chews. So they need to be removed by a dental specialist.
Geez, another painful, costly issue. I will speak to the dental vet. I just hate having cassie anesthetized again. We'll wait a few weeks.

Poor Cassie, sorry you have to go through this. Our babies sure are costly, but they are oh so worth it. Cost us 59$ for the recent paint incident, JUST to make a phone call to animal poison control.

Aww no! Luc cracked a tooth on a bone - now we don't give them.

If it makes you feel better, we adopted a new (fat) cat in July. Fed canned food as it's best for kitty weight loss. Stored some UNOPENED cans of cat food on the dining room table as our kitchen counter space (kitchen is blocked off to dogs) is limited. And Neb is not THAT tall.

We were out one night in August. Came home to find the cans pulled off the table, Neb surrounded by chewed tins of food - no cuts in his mouth, we thought 'Surely he didn't SWALLOW any cans'.

Went for x-rays the next day. While pottying before the appointment he pooped metal. X-rays showed some metal in colon and some possible in stomach. Vet thought it would pass on his own, recommended we give white bread to bind in case what was showing up in stomach on x-rays was in fact can. We did. Took the next day off and walked him 10 times. By the 8th time he'd stopped pooping metal.

That night at 11pm he puked a bunch of metal up. So off we went to the e-vet. Yup, still metal in stomach and colon!!! They said he'd probably need surgery, but if we wanted to give it a day to see if it would pass, we could.

We took him home and contacted our vet first thing the next day to arrange for an endoscopy (rather than surgery) to remove the cans at a specialist e-vet.

Moral of the story: Don't assume because a can is closed a Beagle can't smell the food inside!!!!

Holy smokes, hope your dog is ok. Cassie will go to a drawer in the bedroom where i put a couple of treats. She never saw me put them there but she could smell them . I should hire her out for sniffing out contraband so she can earn her keep. She ate a bunch of grass the other day and puked up her food. Geez.
