Poor old Wally dog. Not only did he have some teeth removed due to dental decay, the vets discovered an injury under his tongue that was ulcerated. Likely from biting something hard and sharp, it had a small ulcer, had fractured most of his lower front teeth (exposing the roots), plus turns out he’s been eating rocks as the wound had lots of tiny pebbles in it. Feeling terrible - what kind of dog owners are we? We didn’t even know…only reassurance was that it wasn’t noticed by the vet on multiple examinations until he was under anaesthetic.
He’s pretty groggy and miserable tonight.
