Horton’s Smile

Horton's tongue

Horton recently needed to have some dental work done. He required a teeth cleaning and, unfortunately, some extractions too. With a heavy heart, his Mom took him in for his surgery and his Dad was to pick him up later that day. Poor Horton ended up losing most of the teeth on the right side of his mouth including the 2 fangs on the top and bottom. These teeth are especially important as they keep the tongue in the mouth. If you see Horton on the street, please don’t be offended that he’s sticking his tongue out at you (he can’t help it).

It took Horton a few weeks to get back to his normal self and to eat dry food again. (Though he occasionally has trouble cleaning up all his kibble.)
