After see the vet and trying out several medications like predisone and antibiotics, the redness at the gum line never went away. The family made the decision to try the dental and see if perhaps the redness was due to an allergic reaction to a tartar build-up (though the teeth were pretty clean already). This was last month and he was again on antibiotics for several weeks afterwards. Needless to say the redness is still there and there has been no improvement. He is acting fine and the teeth are not bothering him but there must be some explanation as to why this won't go away. At the time of the dental they took biopsies in two areas along the gum line. We didn't send them in at the time hoping the dental would solve the problem but we are now going to have to have the samples sent in to see what is going on. Really hoping it isn't serious, we have enough heartache with the recent diagnosis Mia received.

The vet is supposed to call tomorrow morning to work out a plan of action.

Cheers,
Chester and family
