Little Fang

Today I've been to the vet with Cricket. We have been trying to figure out what to do about her chronic problems with inflamed gums for a long time now, and the last time we had her in for a proper check with blood-test and x-rays and so on the outlook wasn't so great. She's generally healthy, but her gums and her teeth doesn't seem to function well together. The plan was to put her on antibiotics for two weeks and if that didn't help the next step was to pull her teeth out... All of them except her front teeth and her canines.

Tough. I don't want to do it. But I don't want her to hurt.

So. Today the two weeks were up and we went back for a check-up. And it looked better! Not good, but there was an improvement! So now we'll give her another two weeks of antibiotics, then wait for two more weeks to see if it'll hold and the we decide.... Here's to my sweet Cricket and her little fangs! Cross your fingers and paws!

 

You're something special! Embrace your darkness, never be ashamed...
