Manny got to the vet, Apply Valley Animal Hospital, at 9AM on Tuesday, March 17th, 2015. He was seen by the doctor and it was confirmed that he had a serious gum infection. The lightest touch of his teeth caused Manny to flinch in pain. Further, there was real risk the infection had already spread or soon would spread through the body, and also to the stomach. As such a thorough exam was done, and it was determined that the infection had not yet spread. Also, other than the teeth, Manny was in great health. Thus the vet recommended immediate surgery and removal of some of the teeth as needed.
Manny went into surgery that morning, and came out of post surgery care at 2:30PM. He was sleepy, but otherwise fine! The necessary extractions were done, and he is expected to be fully recovered in about 5 days!
