Tooth extractions

655 Views 3 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  grandmaof6
My dog had a dental appointment today. The vet pulled 8 of her teeth. I was a bit alarmed, as that seems like a lot at one time. She had 4 from the back removed and they pulled her front, bottom teeth. I noticed before bed that one side of her face is extremely swollen. Is this normal? I plan to call the vet first thing in the morning. Anyone else experienced severe swelling with their dog after extractions? Is it normal for the vet to taken out so many teeth at once? Thanks

My doxin had 7 pulled at once as well, bc my husband didn't want to spend the $, but he had started to have bad breathe so he gave in. He didn't have any swelling, got along fine. I hope you called the vet, I'm sure he or she would give them an anti-inflammatory to help. Mine came home with penicillin. And a few pain meds.
