When Buckley first arrived, we thought his top teeth were overgrown and just needed to be trimmed. A recent visit to our veterinarian revealed that his bottom teeth grow out horizontally, his top teeth don't grown down - they sweep off to the sides, and his molars have sharp points and distortions that render them nearly useless and painful for chewing. The back teeth are also impacting his eyes. How he managed to survive as long as he did is a testament to his desire to live. His inability to eat well is obvious by his under-developed size.
With surgery, he will be able to make up for those lost calories and be free from the pain and suffering his mouth deformities have caused him.
He is the sweetest little guy and at only two years old, he has a lifetime ahead of him. One we want to make sure is full of love, kindness, special care, and friends.
