post #31 of 43
As others have said.....I too would do the shots untill I could afford to have his teeth removed.

Poor Bugsy. I hope the shots do help

Thank you guys for all the vibes, advices, and hugs!
I was going to take him to the dentist today, but I decided not to. I don't have the funds to do the procedure anyways, and he is already so traumatized with vet visits and meds, I decided to not do anything else until next month, when he needs another shot.
I ordered Transfer Factor today, and also started mixing his antibiotics to his wet food in the morning, which I hope will work for the whole time he needs it (it worked today).
He is also on L-Lysine and missing Link - I am going to do all I can to keep him healthy while I can't do the procedure. I do, however, want to take him to the desntist for a 3rd opinion. The dentist doesn't charge for a consult, so I am going to do that before I take him to the vet for the second shot.
Poor baby - I just want him to be ok....

I honestly would pay another vet for another opinion before I would decide with my cat.......Just being straight up as they come here.

I already got a second opinion... I am going to take him to the dentist for a third opinion, but not to another vet... The dentist doesn't charge for a consult, so that is good

I'm sure the few cortizone meds will not do any damange, it's not going to be for his entire life, only until you get the money so I wouldn't worry too much about that..
Many vibes for Bugsy to feel better

OK then......I would play cool azz when going to the dentist.......if you have tears rolling down your cheeks about Bugsy.......the dentist may just stick you good. Just play it smart while going for your consultation for "free" I would bring my BIGGEST male friend with you to the session for more power in your favor Just a good male opinion here to think about

Thanks Bob - I am ok going on my own though... I don't think the dentist or the vets are out to get me, or my $$$ . This is a good dentist here is my area, it is actually a dentistry hospital. If he wants to charge me a ridiculous amount of $$$ to do the procedure, I won't do it. I also have another dentist as a backup plan. Bugsy will be fine... All I am hoping is that I can get on hold of that $$ sooner than later.

Just wanted to add that my Gezer is toothless and happy all the same. He's been like this for several years now and I don't think it affects his quality of life one bit. He even munches on the gang's dry food whenever he's in the mood.
