Can periodontal disease be the answer to my little girls sad face?
by Jackie Popps
Hello ;) My husband and I just recently adopted a boston who needed a good home ;) We are SO in love with her, and we want to make her the happiest little girl in the world. She is seven years old, and came to us with pretty bad periodontal disease. We have visited our vet, and she will be having surgery very soon to remove the bad teeth, and get the rest cleaned.
In the mean time, I am wondering if this could affect her emotionally. She doesn't seem to want too much but sleep ;( We are doing everything we can to get her active and playing. She likes her walks, when it's not raining, but at home she won't even touch her toys. Are we bad parents? Maybe she just needs more time to adjust? I just want our little girl to be happy, and she seems so sad sometimes. Any advice to a new mom?
