The topic: Back from the vet


Well, it looks like she has something called (short name) stomatitis.  This is a problem with the immune system, where the immune system spots an intruder and goes overboard trying to defend against it.  In this case, the intruder was most likely something to do with the buildup of tartar on her teeth.

The vet really doesn’t want to pull the teeth, although that would be the aggressive treatment.  He wants to give her a deep dental, cleaning under the gums and trying to scrape all the crap out.  He was ready to do this today, but when he checked his surgery schedule, he’s doing a lung operation on a dog and he wants as much extra room as possible.  We made her appointment for Thursday. 

She’s already been started on antibiotics to help with any infection.  He said after the antibiotics, she might need a course of prednisone to keep the immune system at bay, until this clears up.

He said her teeth don’t appear to have any cavities and they aren’t loose, so he thinks there’s a good chance they can be saved.  If he finds differently during the dental, he’ll pull them.  If not, we try this other course of action.  He said, if down the road, she does need these teeth pulled and he spanks himself for not having done it now, he’ll not charge us for the extractions.

So, Thursday it is. 

He also asked about Ciara.  I guess no one told him.

Today’s tummy belongs to none other than Bartholomew Bradley, he of the extra toes (both front and back paws).  He’d bite me if he knew I was posting this picture.


If you’ve got a Tummy Tuesday blog entry, feel free to post the link in the comment section or trackback to this entry. And if you put a link back to this page, then more kitties will get to show off their tummies!
