Tooth Trouble

Maggie had to have seven teeth pulled on Monday.  She has horrible teeth and her gums are always red.  I have tried brushing.  I have tried special chew toys.  The only relief she gets is when she is on prednisone.

Nothing ever goes the way you plan it.  First of all we had to drive in the freezing rain Monday night to pick Maggie up from the vet.  She seemed fine for a few days but she was on pain meds and really didn't notice her teeth.  On Friday, the meds were gone and the soft food had Maggie's tummy upset. Now we had a new problem.  Saturday we started Maggie on hamburger mixed with rice.  Panther gets a little as well.  We can't have anyone getting jealous.  The mixture seems to be working.  I hope the greys don't think that hamburger has been added to their menu.  I planned on having that hamburger sometime next week for dinner but... I think this was more important.  I'll be keeping my eye on Maggie this week, just to make sure everything is back to normal.  At least as normal as it can be with two boys and two greys in the same house.  :-)
