I dropped Henry off for a dental procedure this morning. He had two loose teeth that needed to be removed. Well the vet just called and said he needs to have 14 teeth pulled! 14!!!
The poor little guy. He will only have 7 teeth left.
I have brushed his teeth and applied a special gel every single night since he was a puppy. I just don't understand why nothing seems to work... I have tried so hard to avoid this for him - the guilt!
Has anyone had any luck preventing dental disease?

Thank you so much Kathy. That is what both my vet and the vet dentist have said. It is just the tiny mouths. I still feel so bad for him! I wish that there was something I could do to prevent it.
I hope that you and Pipper are doing well! Whenever I think of Pipper I think of him spinning! :)

Thank you Walter. Lucky had the most interesting diet of any dog I know! It sounds as though he was a real foodie!
