The vet called shortly after three and told me I could come get him. I guess Opes was gassed in the carrier.
He has no teeth. There were some that had broken off above the gum and the vet had to go in and get all of the roots and remaining tooth below the gumline. I guess it wasn't a lot of fun.
Anyway, I went down and settled up the bill ($571.00 *koff*) and brought him home. (Although I do get a free revisit in ten days for a recheck.)
Around his mouth was all bloody and there's blood on the towel that was in the carrier. When I got home, I set the carrier on the floor and opened it. He ran out and I haven't seen him since.
I've looked in all of his hiding spots in the house, so I'm thinking he must be outside.
I'll go look for him outside shortly.
