My chihuahua and dog dental work
My poor chihuahua had some dental work done this week. Small breeds of dogs tend to build up tartar and the end result is loosened teeth. In order to do some teeth cleaning and extraction, my dog needed some anesthetics and IV for that day's procedures. The cost for dogs are typically 500 to 750 dollars in SPCA. Now, he is recovering fine even though he was a little uncomfortable yesterday.
At the end, 5 teeth had to be taken out but the vet said he can still have a normal diet.
Here are some pictures: (My chihuahua has really big eyes...)
I hate dentist!!
Don't touch me!!
Am I cute?
Here are the brush kit and medicine after teeth cleaning:
