Customer Question

Lisa, this is Charlie's mom. You did not answer my question about risk, pain, or doing his teeth at the same time. Please advise.

Howdy again!All surgery comes with some risk. However, since Charlie has had pre-anesthesia bloodwork and was found healthy enough to undergo surgery, the risk is lessened.Pain can be controlled with medication post-op such as more Tramadol or other narcotics. And I'd skip doing his teeth at this time. I know the desire is there to get them done, but since he is a little compromised, I woudln't subject him to more time under anesthesia than is necessary for the biopsy. Once he's healthy again, then he can have a dental done, but for now, his teeth are the least of his worries.I hope this answers your questions. Please feel free to reply if you have more questions about him.
