As I told you in my last post, Mom and Dad have been trying to be extra careful and observant with all of us.
Yesterday afternoon, we all went out in the yard together. Molly and Macy were playing like they always do. Mom tried stopping them before things got out of hand but….it didn’t work. Molly decided she was done playing and started biting Macy’s side. Macy was trying to get away and neither one would submit to Mom OR Dad. FINALLY, Mom and Dad broke them up. There was blood on Macy’s side and Mom thought Molly ripped her open but it wasn’t Macy’s blood…it was Molly’s! (Macy was fine.)
Molly’s lower left canine broke at the gum line and her tooth was bleeding!
Mom called the vet and the vet said if the bleeding stopped, it could wait until tomorrow (today). Mom got it to stop and for the rest of the day, Molly was separated from all of us.
Everyone took turns being crated or locked in Mom and Dad’s room.
I was very sad and confused.
Molly was very sad, too. She just wanted to be held.
This morning, it was very cold outside and we all got to wear our sweaters. Mom let Macy and me out first and then let Molly out of her crate to put her sweater on. Mom said Molly was SOOOOOO excited for her sweater. She put it on and you know what Molly did? She ran into Mom and Dad’s room and curled up in bed.
As soon as the vet opened, Mom brought Molly in.
They said their surgery schedule was packed for the day but they would try to get her in. At the very least, they were going to numb her jaw and give her a pain med injection. The doctor was very happy that Mom gave Molly some of the leftover Previcox from her dental work.
So now, there are 2 questions:
- Was the tooth broken/cracked all along and that’s why she’s been a grumbly-butt?
2. Is the tooth secondary?
I have a favor to ask all of you:
Please don’t hate Molly. Please don’t hold this against her breed. Please still love her. I do. She doesn’t deserve hatred. We don’t know what her past did to her. She needs love and understanding.
