What's Wrong In These Photo's

Yes, this is Holly.  Can you pick out what's wrong in these two photo's?

Yes, that is Holly's upper right canine tooth.  Look a little "off" to you?

No, it should not be pointed sideways like that.  And, it makes me cringe just to look at it.  Not sure what she hit it on. Holly and Lena got into an "argument" outside Wednesday night and Lena didn't have any wounds, so, no clue how her tooth ended up sticking out at that angle.

She did have emergency surgery Thursday morning at the vet.  (ER Vet couldn't do it cuz they aren't set up for dental emergencies)  Luckily, the vet was able to shove the tooth back into place (Ouch!) to try and save it.  We will be watching it for any swelling or an abscess.  If it doesn't heal on it's own she will have to have it pulled.  Only good thing is that it's on the same side as the lower canine tooth she had to have pulled due to it being broken off, so nothing there to push it out of the way.

And, she will be quite happy to be getting lots of canned food for quite some time while it heals!

So, I will have to take care of my momma Holly for a while.  But, since she does such a great job of taking care of me, it's my job as her baby to now take care of her!

Yikes, that looks like it might be pretty painful. Paws crossed the treatment works for Holly. Good nursing, KhadyLynn.

My Holly did that to he lower canine tooth. Except her jaw had to be wired at the animal specialty hospital. So I feel her pain and yours too.
