The Tale of Kenji & The Vet

Hi everyone!

I'm so sorry I haven't been visiting your blogs...Mom has been swamped with work and all. *pouts* But she has been reading some of your blogs at work during her lunch time, so she has kept me updated somewhat...I'll try to come by as soon as possible once she gets her stuff done.

Well, nothing much has been happening at my place...quite boring, I would say. =( Mom tried to conduct another photo session last week but she couldn't do it coz she was attending her friend's wedding dinner. *sigh* One thing good came out of it though...she brought back some roasted pork from the dinner! It was SOOO yummy...Kenji and I were quite euphoric when we saw it...hehe! I forgot to get Mom to dish out the camera, photos. =(

In other news, Kenji got sent to the V-E-T last week to get some of his teeth extracted! *gasp* He had been having trouble eating his food for a few days, and so Aunty Vivian brought him to the vet...turns out his baby teeth had not fallen out like they were supposed to, and now he has somewhat TWO sets of teeth! o.O" Because of the adult teeth impacting the baby teeth, he couldn't chew properly and so he was scheduled for normal teeth extraction. BUT...

When Aunty Vivian went to collect him after his 'surgery', she was told that the teeth were not extracted! The assistants told her that the teeth roots were embedded quite deep, and to really extract them out would require real surgery...o.O" To make it worse, Kenji had been put under sedation, and cannot be put for surgery so fast after this (apparently we have to wait for about 2 - 3 weeks!). Poor Kenji has to endure more pain for now...he was so confused when he was brought back from the vet because he just woke up from the anaesthesia and couldn't walk properly for a few hours.

Mom feeds him some raw meat now instead of his usual kibble so he doesn't have to chew so hard, and he seems to take to it okay! Mom wants to switch him to raw like me, so I hope he takes to it as well as me...*crosses paws*


On another happier note, Mom finally finished her card design for the DWB Card Exchange! She's just sent it to the printers, so it will take a few days before we can actually see the finished product! hehe! Here's a little sneak peek at what a portion of the card looks like (just to keep the suspense...heh!):

Yup, we used the photos from the 'photo shoot' thingy a couple of weeks ago...the one with all three of us is used too, but it's for you to see when we get the finished product and started sending them...*wink* Till then, I hope I'll get more interesting news to report and more photos to show, AND to visit your blogs so I can read more about YOUR adventures...


32 paws to this post!:

Hi Scottie,
Poor Kenji! I hope his teeth get fixed soon so eating doesn't hurt!

You all look you are in the holiday spirit on your card. Your mom did a nice job on the design.

Remind mom not to work too hard...and to remember to hug you!

Poor, Kenji! This is awful! We hope he's feeling better eating the raw meat like you, Scottie!

Poor little Kenji with all those teefies. WE hope they sort themselves out v soon.

Our hooman had an Airedale before we came along and he had both sets of teeth but after a visit to V.E.T. and threatend extractions they fell out by themselves.

Thanks for voting for my big brother Chance! (I worship him) and think he should be king.

Poor, poor Kenji. That sounds like an awful mess in his mouth. My owner had that happen when she was growing up and her baby teeth were slow to fall out. We hope Kenji endures and gets some relief in that crowded mouth!

Your pal,

Kess And Her Mama said...

Feel better soon Kenji :)


Pedro said...

Huh! The same thing happened to me with my baby teeth. I had a double row for awhile but they finally came out. Mom says my breath was really bad until the baby teeth were gone. How rude!


Siku Marie, White Dog said...
