I am happy that Brinx made it through the procedure without major complications this time. I wish him continued comfort.

Glad his heart held up good, and it was only 2 teeth. That's a relief. It's tough watching our dogs get old. emoticon

Mary - Hope Max is feeling better now - he is a real cutie!

The surgery went pretty much as we had expected.

Brinx just lost the 2 teeth we had expected, which is a good thing as he only has 18 teeth left in his little mouth out of the 42 he should have! He now has ZERO fangs left poor boy! Even after nearly 30 days on anti -biotics before this surgery, there was still so much infection left that he's to take them for another 7 days.

The vet also removed a shiny "freckle" thing from one eyelid that we'd been 'watching' (pun intended) for a couple of years now, but it had changed size and shape , so the vet felt it was a good idea to get rid of it while Brinx was already knocked out.

So, poor lad has stitches in both his mouth and one eyelid. BUT... his heart did NOT give them any grief this time, stayed nice and strong throughout the entire procedure. What a big relief!!!

We're back in at the clinic in the afternoon with the other 2, for their bi - weekly pain shots, and will be talking to the vet about whether he thinks we are getting close to the point where we have to make that horrible decision for them that nobody ever wants to make.

emoticon for posting the recall notice. My dog does not eat this food but I have posted the notice on my FB page.

Max spent a night at the vet about a week ago due to an intestinal infection. It was scary for us. He just finished prescribed food as part of his recovery and is feeling much better now.

Hugs for Brinx's. Henley will be do for a dental check-up again in a couple of months. He had 2 teeth pulled last year. His teeth didn't look bad for his age, but all of a sudden he had a swollen mouth on his right side. Sure enough, it was a bad tooth. It was in the back.

Alice is doing a lot better. She coughs once in a while, but I think it is weather related. We haven't had a lot of rain for so long, I think it just affected her this year. Let us know how Brinx is after his surgery.

At least there IS a recall, and hopefully this time there aren't any animals whose health is adversely affected!

I've been wondering how is your lovely Alice doing?

Brinx is in for surgery again in the morning - yet another dental. He will be losing one tooth for sure and probably a couple of others as well - his very last fang will be gone! The worry is that his heart will stop again like it di during his last 2 surgeries. He just turned 9 on Feb.22nd and has a heart murmur.

Yes I do Kathy. That's twice in the last 2 months isn't it?

MaryAlice, there are good companies out there. Natural Balance is good. Purina Grain Free was recommended for my Hound, as he has allergies. We put our other 2 dogs on it as well. They all like it.

Well, Jeanne you know what I think about Blue Buffalo foods...... emoticon

Even after the whole class action law suit they were involved in around the time their food poisoned our Phoenix, they were STILL denying any culpability about all the animals who were injured / killed by their food.
