#102 - Ringo's Vet Visit



Today it is Ringo's turn to have his poor little mouth fixed up. When we rescued him in June, he had already had several teeth extracted upon arriving at the shelter, and they told us that he had very poor oral health so it would be likely that he would lose more teeth. Unfortunately, they were right. Since he had been starved before the rescue found him, the malnutrition and lack of care took a toll on his overall health, teeth, ears, and eyes included.

The little guy has just been dropped off. He has two broken teeth that are being removed to prevent infection and he will also be getting another cleaning. Hopefully that will help to ward off any more troubles. We have been making sure that his nutritional health is tip-top so that he can be strong all over.

Please keep our little old man in your thoughts today as he is having his little operation. JD made sure to assure Ringo that it is not so bad, since he had his teeth fixed in January. He's such a good little brother! He misses Ringo already, even though he has only been at the vet for just over an hour. I know that he will help Ringo to recover quickly by sharing a little bit of frozen yogurt and lots of warm snuggling!
