Purrs and Prayers Needed for Carmine, Please

Carmine went to the vet today. He was not very happy about that (but are they ever?).

The vet looked around in his mouth and found one very unhealthy tooth. She took him back to another room to look at his mouth some more with a light, and she found another tooth that might need to come out, too.

After some discussion, we decided to try antibiotics for him in case he has a small infection in the bone somewhere in his mouth that they can't see without x-rays. He's also back on pain meds.

If he's not better after this, he will need another dental surgery. His last one was only five months ago. :( If he needs the surgery, they will take a dental x-ray to make sure he doesn't have an abscess as well. They will also extract one or two more teeth (he had two extracted last time).



I can't stand to see my baby in pain. It makes me want to cry. He was visibly distressed when the vet poked at the very unhealthy tooth.

Could everyone purr and pray for him? I hate the idea of him needing surgery so soon after the last one, but if the medications don't help, then we will have to do that. Please pray that these medications help.

We'll try to catch up with you all this weekend. This week was pretty busy, and I (the mom) didn't get much sleep, so I apologize for not visiting as frequently.

  4. We will purr for Carmine and hope it is just an infection which will get better with antibiotics. Don't worry too much as both my cats (rescues) have had big dental surgeries and only have their front teeth now but they still eat well - roast chicken is no problem!!

  8. Poor sweetheart. We're sending our purrs too. Maybe it's a good thing they took so many teeth from both of us, a few years ago. Better so many at once than piecemeal.

    Crossing our paws he'll be okay with the antibiotics.
