Doo's mom here...Doo and Austin were both in for their yearly checkups within the past 3 weeks and Doo just had her teeth cleaned. Just got off the phone with the vet and I knew going in that Doo had 2 cracked/broken teeth, but the vet said they hadn't cracked where nerves were exposed, and that they were still "sealed" so neither one had to be extracted. AND, her right upper K-9 tooth had lots of tartar on it and they weren't sure if they might have to remove that one also, but it looked good on the x-rays so NO teeth were extracted! YAY! I am SOO happy!! Its such a relief. My girl has been thru so much this past year, but she should be good to go, barring no unexpected emergencies.
She also had 2 lumps aspirated and they were just fatty lumps, so she's healthy as an ox. Altho, the vet said she did act strange under anesthesia, kinda like she was having a seizure. She gave her some valium and it helped her and there was nothing in her chart as to it happening before when she's been under for her teeth cleaning. She said they just need to be aware the next time she's out for surgery or teeth cleaning.
The boy dog, Austin, was due to have his teeth cleaned last week but since he is so traumatized by just going in the car and to the vet, I decided to hold off on having his teeth cleaned for a few months. I hate stressing him any more than necessary. They take him to the back away from me to do his exam and said he was such a good boy. (Usually pawrents stay with the kids while they're being examed, but they thought he'd be less stressed if he was away from me.) The vet said he's a good weight and very healthy and happy. She said that she's so happy he's never had any ear or skin problems. Shar Pei don't live real long lives but he's 8 now and starting next year she'll be doing the senior exam on him. Usually by 8 most Pei are getting senior exams, but since he IS so healthy, she didn't need to do it this time. Another, relief for us.
Doo, I am so happy you didn't need any of your teeth removed and that those lumps were just fatty tissue. Scary about the anesthesia, though. Good they will keep that in mind for next time.
Austin, that is wonderful you are so healthy! Keep it up!
Thanks Abby! I know mom sure is relieved and personally I'm glad I don't have to go back to the vets for at least a year. :) I used to not mind going but when mom started taking me weekly for accupuncture and then surgery and various x-rays over the past year, I kinda got fed up with going. (Hear that mom!! BOL)

Thanks Winkie, Sophie Claire, Duncan and Annie! I posted a special thank you to everyone, below.
Remember Doo mom, I lived to be 12 years. Austin still young.
I'm glad your vet visits went well Doo! going to the vet makes me very upset also and I have to be taken in the back too. It's a scary place but my parents say it's necessary tell Austin it will be ok.
