Default Dewey's done.. And fine, but....

The vet called and said Dewey did really well with surgery, and actually came out of the anesthetic really fast. They pulled two baby teeth, but the vet didn't pull all baby teeth still there, because he doesn't see any adult teeth coming in yet, to take their place! He asked me about his diet and was concerned about the calcium level. So... He wants to see him in a month to see if the remaining baby teeth come out on their own, and if the adult teeth are coming in. He then went back to look at his records about the BAT test and told me to keep him on the food I'm I'm feeding him now. at first he wanted him on puppy food until he looked at his charts. Now.... What does all this mean??? should I be concerned??? I actually see two vets in the practice(I like them both) and the other vet was the one that I was seeing about the BAT test. He comes home after 4:00.
Deborah and my Fluffs, Laurel, Violet , Hardy and Dewey!

Does puppy food have higher protein? If so, maybe it's just he wants to keep the protein levels down, isn't that important with MVD dogs? I'm sure Laurel and Hardy and Violet hope all Dewey's baby teeth fall out and the new ones never come in!!

Maybe that is why he is biting so much---still hatching the other ones. Lisi bites lots of stuff---the round chair rail bottom of my kitchen chairs this week---had to do bitter apple. I keep finding her w/little wood chips (from where?) in her mouth too!
I would not worry at this point as he isn't going to show. Sometimes it is a blessing as the mouth is too small to support all teeth---at least that was the case w/my daughters.

Glad he did well Deb! I bet the other vet will be able to shed some light on the food issue.

I would hate to live in a world without dogs, glass, or wine...

I'm glad he did great and is awake

Try not to worry about it right now. Get Dewey back to his usual feisty self first

May mean his food doesn't have enough calcium in it.... could always add calcium for him if that is needed.
