A year later, Rupert has come so far and is finally starting to understand his toys. His favorite place in our home is on "his" couch in the living room where he spends most of his time. This has become his place of safety. He is at a point now where he understands that his mother and I only want the best for him and want him to know what it feels like to live a long healthy life that is pain free. This is where you come in.
Rupert has always had trouble with his teeth. When we got him from the rescue, he had already been through some surgery to repair a few teeth that were protruding horizontally through his bottom gums. Often when eating, he is hesitant due to the discomfort that eating causes. We have met with a pet dental specialist (at the request of our vet) and found out that Rupert still has major issues. He currently only has 5 teeth remaining, two of which desperately need to be removed. This will leave him with only 3 teeth total.
He has roots from old teeth that never came in properly and are trapped under his gums. This opens up the strong possibility of infected tissue. He also has 2 deteriorated teeth, which are fully dead, and need to be removed. He is also in need of a biopsy of his gums to insure no other diseases are present. This has become a priority since any gum and teeth disease can lead to more serious health issues down the road. We just want the best for our little guy and we want him to know that the puppy mill years are behind him and a life of happiness is what he can count on now.
