Darmok is going to have his first teeth cleaning tomorrow morning. His vet, who has been with us since he was 6 months old, says it's time.
She will also be evaluating his overbite and the impact to the top of his mouth. One tooth has made a "dent" and she will be able to determine if it's anything to worry about.
I'll be taking Darmok in today for his semi annual med check, including heart worm test, and pre-cleaning exam.
Because he is a service dog the clinic does things a little differently for me which I really appreciate. They do the blood work the night before, the vet will take him on a quick tour behind the scenes and in the morning take us into an exam room, give him whatever that relaxing medicine is while I steady him, the vet then takes him immediately for the procedure and I collect him as he is waking up.
I'm actually really looking forward to his teeth being checked out and cleaned. I'm hopeful that the recommendation will be to continue to do nothing about his overbite. He's nearly 3 (OMG) now and I'm guessing his jaw/ teeth are pretty much done growing.
