Sprout was lucky enough to get an appointment with our exotics vet this morning ( she only works 2 days a week now). Sadly its not the best news, but also it was what we were expecting. :cry:

He has bad spurs on his upper molars, which have gone in to his cheeks - this is why we could see he was having problems swallowing The vet agrees that his roots look bad and Sprout will need to remain on metacam for the foreseeable future, if not for life. So tomorrow he is going in for a dental, x-rays and blood tests to make sure being under weight for so long has not caused an damage to his major organs. Once we have the results of the x-rays we will know if his horrible incisors can be removed of if the roots are just too tangled and over grown.

Sprout has never had a Ga before so he needs all the vibes and good wishes possible to get through tomorrow :love:

We have also estimated that if the incisor removal goes ahead his treatment is going to cost around 500

Sprout is at the vets now. They have already rung to say he was too wiggly to take presurgery bloods so will have to take them once he is under GA.

The good news is, sprout has eaten 3 huge bowls of soaked pellets since 4pm yesterday so has a nice full tummy to get him through today

Just spoken to the vet who is operating while the nurses take x-rays. The GA is going well so far, but he is in a real mess with his mouth :(

I have great news :) Sprout is OK, he has had his Ga and is coming round nicely. In fact he did so well under GA they even managed to castrate him :)

Now the not so good news. Once he was under and could see inside his mouth properly they found some nasty spurs on his lower molars that had grown into his tongue. This is why he couldn't swallow food properly or pick up any veg :( His molars have all been burred back now but he has an extremely sore tongue, so it may take a while before he can eat any veg etc.

He had x-rays taken which showed very over grown lower molar roots. As he is so tiny the vet feels there is not much we can do to treat them, it will just be a case of pain relief and monitoring their progression. Thankfully at the moment there is no sign of abscess or bone infection.

We are still undecided whether to remove his incisors. They couldn't be taken out today as two of them are broken below gum level, The x-rays also shown they have incredibly long roots and Sprout has a very little mouth. It seems given the state of his molars he will need regular dentals so we can reassess the situation on a fairly regular basis. The vet's feeling was that if Sprout needs monthly/6 weekly dentals then its not worth attempting to remove them as they could be burred regularly under Ga when the molars are done. But if with a better diet his molars stay OK for many months then it might be better to attempt to remove the incisors to save Sprout having to go back regularly just for an incisor burr, especially as he is is so wiggly.

As Sprout is small and thin they were unable to get a blood sample even when he was under GA. But as his teeth are so bad and he did so well under GA the vet feels they wouldn't have told us anything as his condition appears to be solely down to his dental issues. If there is liver damage from being so underweight for so long , then hopefully it will right itself once Sprout can eat normally.

So a mixture of good and bad news really. But the the best news is, Sprout got through today and will be coming home to enjoy the rest of his life, however long that may be :)
