I believe it's tooth related and started her on some antibiotics I had left from Josiah (he took a course every 3 - 4 months to keep his teeth from getting too bad). She has taken them for her own teeth, so knew she could take it.
She's had 3 doses. Swelling is down a bit.
My vet is of the belief dogs shouldn't have dentals/cleanings. He feels, espcially in older dogs, that if a tooth gets bad, it's best to let them come out naturally. ???? Belinda feels I should get an appointment w/ her vet, and have Misty's teeth cleaned. Thoughts???
Meanwhile, Misty is enjoying the sudden appearance of canned/soft food and treats. She was not thrilled at the lack of her nightly crushed ice treat last night.
