Must Love Pekes is a blog for those who love Pekingese, their looks, their antics, their personalities. It is written by me, Linda, and I have been rescuing Pekingese for over 15 years. Lots of them have gone through our home. We have loved them all.

CLARA AFTER SURGERY
Clara had her dental surgery yesterday and came home last night with pain meds.
She lost all but two back teeth. Dental care is so important. Her teeth would not have been so bad if they had care. Some of her teeth were broken below the surface That meant more work was involved in taking care of the damage. Without dental care, Clara had severe periodontal disease with plaque and tartar build up. This led to infection, gingival recession, pockets, and unstable teeth.
Clara is on antibiotics and pain meds. I am feeding her small meals throughout the day and she will heal now.
Last night, I put her in the little playpen to sleep since she was so sleepy. She was having none of that! She wanted her bed next to my pillow, as usual, She fell right to sleep next to my head.
She will take weeks to heal, but she WILL heal. She is a little sweet warrior and her new life continues. ❤️❤️.
