Fair Warning! Gross Photo Below

I am posting photos to show what my new foster dog Jake has had to endure - terrible dental health. His breath was so bad that when I picked him up in the car I had to crack the windows even though he was riding in the back seat. He also came with his underside completely broken out and a respitory infection likely due to his teeth or possibly an allergy (bad food?)

The first photo is from Monday when I got him. The last photo was taken a little while ago after his dental procedure today. A very nice rescue-friendly dentist did the work for only $250 after my dentist quoted $600 - $900. I only have one photo of new smile because I didn't want to touch his mouth much - he has stitches and lost 8 teeth.

Now that you have made it past the ugly photo, here is the reward........

Aren't they pretty? And his breath is neutral. He's sleeping by me having been under anesthesia today.

Ohhhh. I will tell Jack his crossed paws did the trick(-:
That is really a big difference!! I bet he will feel so much better in a few days too. Poor thing. I wish I could give him a hug! And hugs to you for doing what you did to help him!!! You are hero!!!
