I got home from Houston on Wednesday to find Samson stinking to high heavens, swollen over his L sinus, weepy eye, and thick stanky and plentiful snot coming from his left nostril. My vet came out and found a loose upper molar on the left (I think she said #9?) And said it was causing a sinus infection as well. He was on 13 pills of metronidazole and 12 of SMZs 2x/day but went off his food so we stopped the metro. By today he was eating pretty normal and was feeling good! My vet came back and pulled the tooth today, and after a really long day for them, he managed to let his tooth go very easily He should be feeling much better, despite still having horrible teeth. You can see how shiny smooth his grinding surfaces are, which is why he can't chew anything other than mush anymore. He's on SMZs for another week, and is still waking up a little bit from his drugs, but was a good boy. It's not every day you get an up close look at such a relic Poor guy was drugged and I was snapping photos of him!
