Muffin needs an xray
Muffin had her incisors removed because they were growing too quickly that weekly dental trims were needed so that she had the ability to open her mouth. Instead of struggling and needing weekly surgeries which would raise her risk under anesthesia, we opted for the best and long term solution for her- Incisor Extraction Surgery.
One of the things we are warned about with this surgery is that because their teeth are meant to grow, there is a chance a tooth could regrow if not enough tissue was taken. This is a very delicate surgery where we can't take too little tissue or too much. If this were to happen and a tooth regrew, it would need to be re-extracted again.
Muffin's peg tooth started growing back first and was successfully re-extracted! Currently her one incisor is now regrowing which we were able to see by x-ray. An x-ray was prompted due to the increase in eye discharge.
Unfortunately, the incisor has started growing in the complete wrong direction. Muffin's incisor is growing straight out of her mouth and not downwards. An x-ray will be needed right before her incisor is extracted when it's 1-2cm in length, just long enough to be able to grab it during surgery. The x-ray will help give us a better visual for surgery so they know exactly what they are getting into before putting her under anesthesia for her surgery.
We need your help to afford Muffin's continued medical care.
