Baby Has Cardio Visit Before Dental Surgery Where It Is Discovered She Broke a Tooth-Ouch!

June 5, 2016

Baby and tiny broken tooth
This is what a good cardiologist does-looks beyond the heart at the whole patient. I'm writing up the updated history of Baby for the cardio visit tomorrow and I noticed two things the cardio found last year the regular vet had not: that Baby had gastro issues (from the xray) and that Baby had asthma (from the xray.) Both of these discoveries explained many symptoms. Hopefully, there's nothing to discover that is wrong this year but I was happy last year (sort of) that two reasons for Baby not feeling well were finally labeled and I could have the regular vet address them.

Baby had her cardio check-up today before dental surgery and all is well. So I called and moved up the dental surgery to this coming Wednesday. Today was the first time back to the cardio's office since Myrna died in August. It doesn't feel like ten months have gone by and it felt odd to go and not take her. But it was also odd to leave with a cat that was healthy. They asked how I was since Myrna died; there were hugs. It was good to be back. There are three more visits this summer for Elizabeth, Katharine, and Bette.

Baby's dental surgery went well Wednesday. It wasn't resorption but a broken tooth. Not sure how that happened. All other teeth in good shape. She came through it well. Came home six hours later after recovery; a bit wired from pain meds but ate immediately and continues to do well. Seems better as you can imagine there must have been pain with a broken tooth.
