Butterscotch is settling in very well with me. She loves getting lots of love and attention like all Goldens do. She went to the vet last week and did great in the car and at the vet. Upon examining Butters she found out that she has severe dental problems. She'll be needing extensive dental surgery. She'll be needing at least 9 teeth extracted or more. The vet won't know how many until she actually does the surgery. She also has severe tartar issues and gingivitis, so you'll need major cleaning of her teeth too. Thankfully the board has approved the surgery and she'll be having it on Aug 24th. Butters is looking forward to getting this done so she'll get her pretty smile back again. The vet also ruled out some other concerns that we had. She said that Butters didn't have Cushing's disease or problems with her thyroid . Other than her bad teeth she's in pretty good health. I will continue to send updates. I'm really enjoying having Butters with me.
