Lucas is doing really well and it goes without saying that I'm glad that the surgeries are behind him. As you may (or may not) know, a dog has 42 teeth. People have 32 which includes the wisdom teeth. Lucas has had 38 removed. It's overwhelming, at least for me, to think about that number. But it had to be done, and I'm thankful that he has been able to have the treatment that he needed. You may recall that Lucas's surgeries were not inexpensive and the total cost has been around $5000. I was told this week that all of his dental work has been paid for from a special fund-raiser that the rescue held for him and other dogs have expensive medical needs.
