A Wounded Warrior Princess

Xena had the remainder of her teeth extracted today; it was a valiant battle fought with on-going dental & veterinary care, but rather than risk her health, we made the right decision & she underwent a final dental surgery.

When Xena came to us four years ago, peridontal disease was extremely prevalent & she underwent surgery at that time, which resulted in 13 extractions. And for the last number of months, neither love nor money could have resulted in a different outcome or reverse the progression.

Thankfully, she is home & after a soft supper, a pee & pain medication she is resting comfortably. Her kibble is softened & mashed & mixed with canned food.
