    DefaultUpdate on Henery: good news and bad news. :(

    Our vet just called... the good news is, his tooth is out. Apparently it was quite a battle to get it out, but it's out. He tolerated the surgery well, and is waking up.

    The bad news is, when they flipped him over to clean the other side of his mouth, she found a fracture in the same tooth on the other side.

    She couldn't extract that one today because he had been under for so long to begin with, so he has to go back in a month to have that one extracted.

    I just feel sick inside for my baby boy. She said that the other fracture likely had been there longer than the one I saw, because it had quite a bit of stain around it, but the fracture is deep and the anterior root of the tooth is already compromised, so leaving it would not be an option.

    UGH!!!!

    And they wouldn't remove it while he was already under??? Time schmime...he's already under, the world would end if you were 15 minutes late for the next appt?

    Poor Hens! Now he'll need another anasthetic (scares the $hit out of me)...my vet tried that one on me once.

    Hope he heals up on one side quick. I'd also find another vet.

    I know, no they couldn't do it today because he had been under for too long as it was already. I trust our vet implicitly, and if she thinks that Henry had been under too long, he had been under too long.

    Glad the surgery went well but so sorry he has to go thru it again.

    Ask the vet about using Propofol and Isofluerine for anesthesia. Its less invasive (used in C-sections) but not sure if it can be used if he has to be under for too long.
