Hello & welcome, I am Dr. B, a licensed veterinarian & I would like to help you with your wee one today.

How long had he had these signs before the dental?

When was his last dose of Metacam?

Did he only have one tooth extracted? A full dental cleaning? Xrays of his mouth to ensure there were no retained tooth roots?
