When Kizzie was seen by vet Lauren, her pupils were dilated and she was ‘chattering’ her teeth together, unable to close her mouth. It was clear she was in excruciating pain. After close examination it was found that one of her large canine teeth was rotten, very wobbly, had moved out of position and the canine tooth on the lower jaw was impacting upon it preventing her from closing her mouth. After having a blood test to ensure that she was well enough to undergo the general anaesthetic the rotten canine tooth was able to be wobbled out!
Kizzie went home with antibiotics and painkillers to help her mouth heal and keep her comfortable. She has since been doing brilliantly at home, has had no more problems and has sparkling pearly whites!
