It was due to be done just as the first lockdown hit us all with a vengeance last March, and then of course it was cancelled. Not classed as an emergency. Then when she had emergency treatment on an eye ulcer last year we were advised to book her straight in after that lockdown ended for the teeth cleaning ... and then of course the third lockdown happened almost immediately so it was put off again. She'd been drooling and smacking her lips a lot recently so I knew something was up and last week I phoned the vets here and made an emergency appointment for her to be looked at.
She was and they booked her straight in for a good cleaning. Well it all came too late, any teeth that might have been saved were now damaged beyond hope and yesterday Suky had all but 3 of her teeth taken out. I don't blame anyone, it's all down to circumstance and we have all suffered in some way during these strange times, even our animals.
