Default Bonnie has a dental on Friday

Hi everyone. Bonnie, my 6 year old longhair who is barely 4 lbs has a dental scheduled on Friday. It has been 2 years and she already has a loose tooth! She is the one who has no lower canines ('fangs'). Her poor little tongue sticks out. Looks cute, BUT I know it is from lousy breeding; for the short muzzle. One of these canines is lying flat just under the gum, the other one is going straight DOWN into the jaw bone. My vet couldn't believe the x-ray. So we will be doing x-rays to check on that. '
'
Meanwhile think good thoughts for us.

Prayers for Bonnie's dental procedure.

Our Snow had one earlier this year and had to have 5 teeth removed. She had an infection that was treated with antibiotics prior to her dental. I'm always nervous when one of our gang has to put under for anything. Can't help myself..

I worry about the endotracheal tube they put down. She has a colapsted trachea, so that can be tricky.

Bonnie went in at 7:30am. Shaking and shivering. The 'nurse' came after they had taken her in back, and talked with me. I explained her extreme shyness. They will use a pheramone spray in her carrier (I left the carrier there for her) and may use a 'thunder shirt' on her. Will let you all know when she is back home and safe!

Bonnie is home safe and probably sore! She had 4 teeth pulled. Mostly the little tiny ones in the front. Has desolvable stitches. She is sleeping now. The vet gave her a little shot of steroids to prevent swelling of the trachea. The 'trach' tube lubricant was also mixed with some steroids. I'm going to leave her a little canned chicken when I go to bed. She didn't even leave her little carrier for dinner.

Update on Bonnie: She peed a lot, ate the chicken during the night, and is doing OK. Did not come to the table for my breakfast (usually get a few kibbles). Unfortunately the other chi--Emmie got into Bon's pen and was gulping Bons chicken as fast as she could. I stopped her, and there was a mouthful of chicken left. Bonnie ate that. I tried to look at her lower jaw to see the sutures, but she squirmed around, and I quit.

I'm glad she's home and doing okay.
Bonnie must be so sore after those 4 teeth. But hopefully she'll get back to her normal self in a couple of days.
And tell Em she shouldn't take her sisters chicken 😉
Sunshine loves stealing the other dogs food as well when given the chance
