Default Sammy Post Spay {warning--sad mom post)

You may have seen my other post on the chihuahua questions forum. So just look at the pictures if you have.

I was not very happy today and I feel like a very bad mom. The vet tech told me that Sammy had a "mouth from heck (substitute heck for the real thing though." and that they had to pull some permanent and baby teeth out. they were decayed and "fell out when the vet touched them." She told me whatever I was feeding her that I had to stop and only give dry food. No more nutrical (even though the breeder told me to give it to her twice a day (just a little). Then she proceeded to tell me that all of Sammy's teeth might fall out. I should come back in a month to get a dental xray or see another vet. And brush her teeth regularly every day. Even so, all her teeth could fall out.

I am really worried that I am a bad mom and now have caused her teeth to fall out.

She's in a lot of pain and I gave her 1/4 of tab of Rimadyl. She chomped down on my hand even though I knew she didn't mean to. I think i am going to give her the kong peanut butter next time (why didn't I think of that before she chomped on my hand?)

Please help me cheer up!

Here's two pictures of sammy. She's been standing, afraid to sit or lay down. finally had to pick her up and put her in the crate. I have a heating pad on to make her feel nice and warm.

Aww it's not your fault Mom ((hugs)) I think she just had bad teeth.You love her and thought you were doing what was good for her.She's so sweet by the way

My Poco barely has any bottom teeth they're just tiny and he can only eat on the back teeth.I feed both my 2 the same thing and Bella's teeth are perfect.


Don't beat yourself up who could possibly be a bad momma to such a sweet girl

Awww, hon, don't beat yourself up. You sound like a good chi mom to me. I know your heart is in the right place. Who knew Nutrical could be a problem???

Lily's had 3 dental surgeries so believe me, I know all about the guilt.

Don't feel bad - you were doing what you thought was best for your baby. OmaKitty had some teeth pulled a couple years ago and I was guilt-ridden over that to the point where I was crying myself to sleep at night. But now I see how much happier she is with them gone - she purrs now, which is something I never heard her do before and she is a little bit more loving, although she's not really a lover. I'm just happy that she's not in pain any more.

My guess is that once she gets up on her feet again, you'll notice a big change in her attitude all because those teeth are gone. You did the right thing for her "back then" and you did the right thing for her now.

First of all I have NEVER heard of Nutrical gving a problem, sorry that sounds like an excuse.....that being said the teeth are probably genetic - if you are brushing etc and the dog is not that old then you are doing all you can do...........I think the vet is a bit wacko

My baby had bad teeth- wasnt my fault the tooth tech said it was bad breeding.....he has no adult teeth to come in after the baby teeth and he still has one baby tooth in there at nearly 2.5 as it is still firm and with nothing behind it why take it out....

anywho stop beating yourself up!! Its not your fault and your baby will feel fine in a day or two...btw the pics are good!!
