See Widget's new picture - she is sitting in front of an a/c return. This was made just before her mouth surgery.
January 2011 update: By the end of December Widget was showing some mouth pain (running from the food bowl) because it hurt to eat, her mouth is now the emergency. So we rushed her in and had her mouth surgery done. Her teeth were so bad they were being reabsorbed by her body, so the vet had to remove all her molars. Widget was again on a morphine patch and eating well (soft food only to start). She still has canines (fangs) and the little tiny teeth in front called 'incisors'. Her surgery this time was $700.83.
Both surgeries have been paid off thanks to our ebay fundraising efforts and foster mom donations! Thanks to our volunteers for keeping up with our ebay sales....
Widget is eating pretty well (carefully) 3 weeks after the surgery. Still mainly on soft food.
Update April 2011 - Widget is doing pretty well now, eating dry and canned food.
May 2011 - She is doing great and is now out and about a bit more, I think most of her pain is gone. Yay!
August 2011 - Widget is doing GREAT. She's up to weight and eating fine. Now we just monitor her and have the vet check her mouth in a few months to see if it is completely healed.
Widget is now completely healed and is ready to go to a new home. She is very shy so typically it takes her a few weeks to warm up to new folks.
