Ma' Belle

This isn't sad news...just worried news about our Belle. My mom took her to the vet last week because Belle has a pain in her nose (not the other end). The vet thought she might have an infected tooth but the anti-biotics and painkillers aren't helping. She is going back tomorrow. The vet (who is a big joker--uh, as in he makes jokes and sings outloud all the time) said when my mom had paid for enough beagle visits he could get a dental x-ray machine (big joke, haha, we've probably paid him bajillions in the past decade--can't you get an x-ray machine for an easy bajillion?)

Belle flinches when you touch her black nose and she sort of gurgles when she breathes like a congested something. My mom knows that we hounds can have sarcomas there but it's best to go with the simplest ideas first. Belle's hiding in the craft room which is a worrisome sign--she usually sleeps with us in the living room. I went in to visit her for a while.

So we're just worried a little, not sad.

Hope Belle recovers soon. Nose is super important for us beagles. Joker vet. Bajillion dollars should definitely be enough for Xray machine!

Hi River,

Thanks for dropping by my blog.

In Singapore (where I live), most veterinary doctors are General Practitioners and Specialists for all forms of sickness/diseases. The dentist could be the orthopedic and gynecologist.

Even if the dogs here have dental problem, the doctors usually extract the teeth instead of 'saving' them. Reason being, there isn't such expertise around.

Thus I believe that Belle will recover in no time, given the help of the vet and the dental x-ray machine.

Sweet Licks,

Booker & his humans are sending lots of get better thoughts and good energy. That vet might be funny, but he needs to BUY that equipment and stop joking around! Hope things aren't serious and easily repaired! Noses are so so so important!
