teeth removed - the big one at the back that was causing the abscess and one on the side that had the top broken off and was exposing the pink inside. All the rest of the teeth are perfect and he didn't even have any scale on them (which for a 6 year old dog is pretty darn good). He just got his teeth polished so they would be nice and smooth. He is on a soft diet for the next week as he has sutures in both places where the teeth were removed and will be on antibiotics and pain meds for the rest of the week too. He is still a little groggy but is outside dogervising Dad who is digging a hole for a new tree. Thank you every doggie for P.O.T.P - we know it helped keep him safe.
