Crickets Visit with Dr Bess

Once Dr. Bess was finished with Billy’s dental examination/ procedure, it was Cricket’s turn.
Cricket’s teeth were bad, too, but not as bad as Billy’s. She also has some missing teeth.
Cricket had an old injury on the upper eyelid of her left eye. The eyelid had been ripped, likely on a branch or fence. It had not been sutured, so the torn part of her eyelid didn’t move when she blinked.
Some of the lashes were turned inward towards the eye. This obstructed some of her vision and most undoubtedly, irritated her eye as well.
Dr. Bess removed the damaged part of Cricket’s eyelid while she was sedated for her dental procedure.
Voila! This photo was taken the very next day. What a beautiful eye!
All done with the dental needs – at least all that could be done today. It will be interesting to see how  Cricket and Billy do over the next few days. Their mouths may be sore for a day or so and they will have to get used to being able to chew.
Thanks to all of you, Cricket and Billy are well on the road to recovery!
