Chewing Ox Tail again

Apparently my losing teeth did not affect my ability to chew on ox tail. Mummy has been giving me skinny ox tail to chew on, and I am able to chew and eat it. I am so happy! I am still able to play fetch squeaky ball game too without my front teeth! As I hate the tooth brush, mummy has been using gauze to rub on my teeth.

Molar extraction.. oouch!

Went to the vet for teeth scaling this morning.... Came back missing a back molar and four fronth teeth. Back molar was cracked and root decaying, so has to be extracted. Four front teeth (three below and one top) were loose, so have to be removed. No tumor found in the mouth cavity. The lump around the throat has reduced in size, so continue with antibiotics treatment. From inside the mouth, the lump looks like a hardened skin, according to the vet.

On the ride home I moved about in the carrier noisily. Once home, Cookie checked me out and I couldn't walk properly. My hind legs were weak. At home I kissed Mummy all over...
I am now taking PlaqueOff which contains especially selected seaweed: D1070. My drinking water is also added with Biotene, which contains two natural enzyme system that help remove plaque. Every night Mummy is also brushing my teeth using PetzLife Oral Care Gel, wild salmon oil.

I am only 5 years old, and I have lost six teeth..... Mummy is very worried...

Discover a lump around the throat

This morning Mummy woke up very concerned as she found a lump on my right side of the throat. She called the vet to make an appointment for this afternoon. Suddenly Cookie's buttock small growth seems so insignificant.

We are back from the vet in the afternoon. The vet treated the swollen throat as an infection. So I was given 2 types of antibiotics. Mummy fed me the pills with yummy food.

This Wednesday I am still going to the vet for teeth scaling. The vet will have a better look at my swollen throat then. The vet also have a look at Cookie's growth and she thought that it was nothing serious.

At K9 Kampus this morning, I was enjoying myself and eating the lamb meatballs. The swollen throat didn't bother me a bit. I was running around the compound actively playing and barking.

A small growth found on Cookie's butt

Mummy found a small growth, about the size of a Singapore one cent coin, on Cookie's butt (not the anus). The growth is regular in shape. So instead of going for a teeth scaling, Cookie is seeing the vet about the growth. Hope it's nothing serious!
