Bella got 13 teeth pulled!

Bella just got 13 teeth pulled. She has one tooth left in front! The vet said there was nothing that I could have done differently. She inherited bad gums, maybe it ties into her previously having a liver shunt.

Canine Dental Cleaning
13 teeth extracted

Grand Total........... only 176.00!
I thought it would be over 1000.00!
She's doing great and eats more now. Maybe I can get her up to 10 lbs, fingers crossed!

Linda- yikes to 13! I freaked out about Isabelle having 7 and my cost was more expensive here in SC!!! Dentals can be very expensive depending where you live. I just was avoiding putting Belle under. It is very common for Maltese to have a lot of teeth pulled as they age so maybe some lines of Havs too? And good for you for staying on top of it. They say a length of a dog's life (especially toy breeds) is very tied into it's dental health. I am trying to take as good of care of Belle's remaining teeth. She still chews like crazy and isn't afraid to use them to nip the new guy

Bless her little heart. I have a friend that had to have all her small dog's teeth pulled also because of gum problems. Within a week she was so much more active and eatting soft food great. It seems the gum infection had made her feel bad and not want to eat. I sure hope Bella does well. Her nickname may be "pudgy" before long.

Poor baby. Hope she is feeling better soon. I always thought it had to do with not brushing (that was the case with my MIL poodle) I should have known gentics play aprt in everything. Special belly rubs from Lilly and me.

Awwww. poor girl!
I bet it has alot to do with her liver, I know my dog with liver issues has bad teeth (and bad breath, even right after her teeth were professionally cleaned). She did have to have a tooth pulled last year, at age 4, when she was spayed.
I hope Bella heals quickly!

Paws.....and reflect on what life has given you~
