I picked Leo up from the vet today after his dental.
They had to remove 15 of his teeth
A few at the back were broken and his gums were quite inflammed. I was mortified they had to remove so many. The Vet nurse was lovely and reasurred me she'd seen worse and as dogs have 44 teeth he'd be fine.
Anyway he seems ok....sleepy but ok. He's had some rice and scrambled egg for tea which he ate fine...typical, 15 teeth out and it hasnt affected his apetite at all !
So Im armed with an enzyme toothpaste, plaque off and I have explained to Leo that despite his non compliance from now on his teeth get brushed.....no arguements.
Thank you everyone for the advice and support.....it really helped.
