He's still at the vet. His glucose level was fine, so they went ahead and put him under. But because it's Riley, there was drama. Here's the report from Doug:
...procedure went well. jennrich said they had to extract a tooth that turned out to be damaged. molar on upper right. he said the outer wall of the tooth had been broken, which is something that can happen when dogs chomp on things, etc.. riley may feel some pain for a few days so jennrich is prescribing a painkiller. otherwise, other teeth looked good. he should eat light tonight and we may need to put water on his food to make it easier to chew. he's sending info on how to tell if a dog is bothered by tooth pain.
I'm going out to dinner with a friend and won't be home until late tonight, so I won't get to see the little guy until long after he's downed his half-rations of watery food and been doped up with pain meds. He'll be in good hands with Doug. But I won't feel quite right until I see him myself.
(And just to set the record straight: I know he looks ferocious in this picture, which is one reason why I like it. But really he was photographed in mid-yawn.)
Chance: Look what I saw!
