Oh and Merlin has to have 2 teeth removed. There seems to be an impacted gum issue.
Spoke to two vets and they say it's a fluke, his teeth/gum are very healthy (I even brush his teeth!) but...during the baby/adult teeth process and teeth grew too close together or something and this pocket happened and now the root is getting exposed and creating a problem (I brought him in because food was getting in there and it bled sometimes but he was in no pain I thought it was just something dumb)

$1500.
Gone.
Ugh.

I feel you at least on the dental front. Adopt a puppy mill product Dachshund? $1,100 dental no matter how hard you fought his awful teeth. SIGH. The vet projects no matter what we do he'll lose all his teeth by the time he's 10.

Get him some titanium teeth, he'll be a badass.

Zora walked up the stairs (whoohoo) all by herself. As in I opened the baby gate and she shot up. Now she's refusing to go back down and my dad isn't home. yay for dogs too big to carry down stairs.

Dannnngggg that is expensive! Kastle's had two mouth surgeries - one emergency surgery at Michigan State University and one at a high-end clinic in Knoxville. Your area must be pricey! That's a HUGE bummer (I was bummed at the price I paid!).

Kastle is missing all but his two front teeth now and he's very comfortable and it hasn't impacted his life at all. All lost due to being dumb and high-drive and annoying.

Wow that's expensive! Summer's extractions were $600. She had an impaction and also a cracked molar. 9 teeth removed. Poor thing has no top teeth anymore at all. She's fine but she did have to learn to chew bully sticks with her side teeth.

I'm starting to feel like I have a very expensive vet.

The everyday stuff is not bad at all but the more people I tell about his 2 teeth the more people are like WHAT???
but I went to TWO vets and both gave me the same estimate!

...maybe I should travel.
I mean I would personally love not to spend almost a months rent on his teeth lol
