    My little guy was very groggy when I picked him up this afternoon at the vet's. I got to take his tooth home with me...i might make a pendant out of it!

    For the remainder of the day he was in his crate, snoozing. I had a house full of people over today and many just visited Finn at his crate and gave him lots of snuggles and belly rubs. He ate some dinner; i only fed him a tablespoonful of canned food but he did finish it. Later he seemed to feel better b/c he came out of the crate and mingled with the guests.

    I'm glad I brought him to the vet's too, and that the doctor was able to perform the tooth extraction right away. He has some stitches in his mouth 'cuz they had to cut into the gums.

    I'm just relieved that Finn appears more comfortable and content. He will be getting lots of snuggles, cuddles and smooches from me this weekend, that's for sure!

    Okay, I will be honest with you...I liked her very much!
    She was warm and seemed genuinely caring. Dr.Garcia also doesn't seem rushed when examining the patient. She explains things pretty thoroughly. I liked how her husband (Dave?) showed me the pictures of Finn's surgery and explained to me what was done, step by step.

    The office has a comfortable and homey atmosphere. It was different from my other vet's office which seemed a little more "cold".
    Today I didn't feel like just a number who they wanted to get in/out as quickly as possible and that's a GREAT thing!

    Big thumbs up from me, Becky!!

    Finn will be going back in 3 wks for a f/u and vaccinations and I intend to take Tate there for future care.

    FanTASTIC news! It's easy to forget about dental issues but an abscessed tooth can kill a dog. I know a guy who was in the hospital for WEEKS recovering from the same. The poison exploded into his blood stream. The dude almost died.

    Great catch, Mama!
