Pupper the Pood

When we first got Pupper a year ago she was in rough shape. The worst of it was her teeth. We thought she had only 9 left and they were in horrible shape. Rotten to the point of reeking and so loose they were practically falling out; her face was swollen and misshapen. It was heartbreaking to watch her. Miserable and withdrawn she was clearly in constant agony. She couldn't lie on her face, would attempt to scratch under her chin before whimpering and giving up. She could barely eat and even treats were a struggle that often ended in defeat. I luckily found a vet who would allow me to pay in installments and had her teeth removed to spare her any more pain. I got a phone call from the operating table as the Vet told me that after xrays we learned she had 7 more teeth than we thought. They were broken and her gums had healed around them, likely from chewing metal bars he told me. He extracted them without going above the quoted amount, he had called only to inform me. It's been a year now since she had her surgery, and what a difference it's made! She's come out of her shell, she can eat (and loves to!), she can sleep and lay out, she can scratch her chin with ease and most of all she's pain free. I don't know how long it had been since her teeth didn't hurt, with 9 years in a mill it wasn't likely she'd ever had treatment. I'm so happy I was able to give her at least her last years without pain, her little gummy mouth is an adorable reminder that she's come so far in a year! #ilovemydog #lovepuppies #dogsofinstagram #pet #doglover #dogs_of_instagram #pets #cute #animal #instagood #puppy #animals #lovedogs #dogstagram #instagramdogs #petsagram #dog #rescuesogsofinstagram #rescuedog #dog #pupper #seniordog #seniordogrescue #teacuppoodle #toypoodle #poodle #poodlesofinstagram #dogsofinstagram #cute #cutedog #doggo #pupper #poodpics #oldagepuppers
