Hope the dental procedure goes well, and perhaps the extractions won't be necessary.
Our Snow, had a dental a few months ago with 5 extractions. It was $463, not too expensive considering all the work done. She was treated for an a severe infection for two weeks prior to her procedure. Poor baby's face was so swollen and unable to eat well until she finished her antibiotics.
"There’s no changing people, and we can’t even help people with whom we’re emotionally involved. Let them be, stop expecting things from people who cannot provide those things, and recognize that we can live happy, productive lives regardless of what others, even close relatives, are doing or saying."
