Apparently his teeth aren't so great, so he's going to have the dislocated tooth removed, and have a dental cleaning. Hopefully no more teeth will be removed. Just that one. Auntie Kim is going to look over the estimate and then call them tomorrow. I knew this was going to happen and it scares me to death. They told me that they do a light sedation, and no one has passed under them, which is good. He would be coming home the same day, but it still scares me, as he is my baby.

    I'm sure Jack will come through all this just fine but I understand the worry. I worry like that , too! We had a dog that had a tooth removed and no problem. Annie has had her teeth cleaned several times under sedation and was just fine. Fingers & paws crossed that all will be well! |:|

    Jack is only six! LOL No seriously, I'm trying not to worry, but I can't help it. He's my baby. You see, the boys picked who are their favorites and while Gypsy Road latched onto Auntie Kim, Jack latched on to me. I have heard stories of pets dying while being under for a dental cleaning. This is what scares me the most. I don't have the emotions to go through this right now. If we lose him...I don't knwo what will happen. Maybe I am being over anxious, but I can't help it. |:||:| Mom
