taking a bite out of...

Friday, July 27

Poor Milo is pretty swollen.  I've been giving him ice chips with salmon over it to get him to lick it which seems to have helped the swelling.  He also had an 81 mg aspirin this afternoon.   He has loose stools from the anesthetic and stress so he is on metronidazole for that.   He seems to be in pretty good spirits despite his discomfort.   A little extra clingy today.  He is less disoriented this evening so the morphine is wearing off.  

The vet sent me home with Milo's teeth and they are really something.  I never knew that the canine teeth were so very large.  Amazing!  No wonder his face was so swollen today.


  1. Hang in there Milo- you will feel better soon!

  2. Give Milo some hugs and kisses for us. He is a real fighter,
    and your love keeps his spirit up.....thank you for watching over
    this sweet boy.
