Poor Fay, not that he thinks so. Last week I noticed that his gums over one canine were looking angry and a bit rough. Saturday, I noticed that the canine was going off-colour. By Sunday evening, the side of his muzzle had swelled up!

Fast forward to today; 5 days of antibiotics and metacam, and it's gotten a bit bigger. He's now got a swelling in the roof of his mouth too.

He's booked in for investigations on Thursday but I'm waiting for the vet to ring me back to try and get him in sooner - partly for the speed of whatever's going on, partly because I fly to Spain next sunday for 9 days and if anything needs doing in terms of an op, I want it done while I'm still here! My dog sitter is outstanding and won't have any issues doing post-op care but Fay might not be too keen on going in a different car (and apparently gets hit a bit hard by anaesthetic) so I want anything like that done and dusted in plenty of time, if anything needs doing.

Obviously at this point I'm hoping it's just a stubborn closed infection (he's only had antirobe so far so nothing particularly specialised) but I am a bit worried about my boy wub.gif

Fortunately, thus far it been completely non-painful so Fay is still entirely his normal, cheerful self, still playing and chewing things. So at least I don't have that side of things to worry me!

Nope, no sticks, just hooves. He eats loo roll tubes sometimes sigh.gif But there's no sign of anything stuck or any entry wounds.

The vets rang me back just after I posted - we've been back in for a checkup tonight and he's booked in as an emergency for Monday morning for his x-rays and whatever else is needed. *phew*

He's the third youngest at 5 wub.gif

There is a condition in which a growth appears round a tooth. The growth, tooth and part of the jaw have to be removed but it is usually non malignant. Trouble is I cant remember what the condition is called. sad.gif

There are a few things it could be - fibrosarcoma, abcess, some sort of bony growth. I'm hoping that it's an abcess or simply a stubborn closed infection, or even a simple infection that didn't respond to the antirobe.

The vet doesn't want to remove the tooth if possible as she said the canines are harder with huge roots, but we'll see what happens. If it's a fibro I've no idea what they can do, with the way it's spread inwards, but I'm not panicking about anything just yet!

Well, nothing apart from the bill anyway lol.gif
