Bad day at the vets

Posted on Thursday 19th August 2010 @ 06:07 pm

At a recent regular visit to the vets to have Jaali’s teeth trimmed. He ended up loosing more than expected.

Jaali’s regular vet was away so a different vet bravely stepped in to trim Jaali’s teeth. Jaali had been coping well with the regular dentistry work but he decided to fight back against this new vet.

As usual there were three humans attempting the procedure but Jaali wouldn’t be held still long enough to get it done. The vet managed to trim the right tooth but Jaali really twisted his head as the left one was being done. A huge length of tooth came away as the tooth snapped off at the gum line.

While checking that there was no other damage to Jaali’s mouth we noticed that the nurses hand had blood on it. Jaali hadn’t bitten her but he had ripped one of his toenails back.

Jaali left the vets with only one front tooth and a very sore toe. Both are expected to grow back.
