11/18 Update – Brady had his 4 remain molars removed today. All he has left are his adorable “snaggletooth” canines. He will need to be on a soft food diet.
Brady has just arrived fresh from death row in Colonial Heights. He was turned on October 27 and we don’t know much about him.
He went to the vet today (11/03) for a cursory exam because he was very itchy with no relief from Benadryl and it was making him miserable. He is on a 10 day course of Prednisone during which we will be feeding him a nutritious diet with added coconut oil to relieve the dry skin.
He has no teeth remaining on his upper jaw and only his 2 canines and 4 molars on his bottom. The molars are in need of cleaning, but we are going to see how much we can do with scaling to avoid putting him under anesthetic since they are in a good location.
It is believed the girl that turned him in as a “stray” was actually his owner. He has no mats, is well fed, though he needs a groom. His fur is a bit dry, but that is nothing a good diet will not take care of.
