    Made an appointment at the vets for tomorrow, as Nero's nose has a swollen bump on one side- and since he's had all his teeth out only last week, I'm a bit concerned. He's not in pain, and it's not huge, but it wasn't there before. He's on antibiotics, so I'm hoping that they've stopped any possible infection. Urrrrrgggghhhhh. I'm hoping I'm paranoid and it's just perhaps the way that the swelling as a whole is going down, and his mood is still good, which is positive.

    I'll try to take a pic in a mo...

    It's possible- but I called the vets to ask if he could play with the balls and soft toys and they said it was ok :confused: I guess I won't have a clue until tomorrow.

    Here are some pictures- it's on the right side as you look at him, about halfway down his muzzle (he wasn't impressed about being disturbed from his afternoon nap :rolleyes: )

    Just got back- long queue! He is fine, phew! it's 'wound fluid' (ewwww) Basically, because the holes are now closing from the roots removal, the fluid can't drain into the mouth so it's sitting in the muzzle- we're continuing his antibiotics and anti-inflammaroties for a week more, but I don't need to worry unless a foul smell appears, or it suddenly swells much more. Such a releif! :D

    We also met an 8 week old staffy pup, an 8 month old border terrier cross, two GSD puppies and a GR pup- I think may have exploded from the cuteness! :lol: :D Nero wanted to say hello to all of them! :thumbup:

    Glad to hear it's nothing sinister. I'm sure he'll be back to his normal handsome self in no time.
