Update on Allie
Today our little princess had her very first dental cleaning ever. I (wrongly) assured her it would be a piece of cake.
And it was, to begin with. The veterinarian told us it was a total breeze: very little plaque, and as easy as could be...until they got to the very last tooth.
That's when we began to feel like we were in the movie Groundhog Day: she,too, had tooth resorption. And it was the very worst kind - almost 100% of the roots of her back molar had been reabsorbed into the bone.
These back molars are the most difficult to extract, and Allie is going to be on pain medication for a few days (Bupronorphine, a morphine derivative for cats). And antibiotics, to stave off infection.
Poor little girl. She didn't have much fun today.
