Good advise on not bothering with the partial. I wish we would have had all of Frank's teeth removed from the get-go (We left his fangs--he only had three, anyway). He can still eat fine but still has some pain with them occassionally. I spoke with our vet about removing the others to just get rid of the problem and he said he wasn't ready for that just yet. He doesn't want to subject him to surgery until it's an absolute must. We will eventually be there I imagine, but we're not there yet. Frank's teeth were removed nine months ago. He did have to undergo an additional surgery because of a root being left behind (That is what was causing him to not eat at all post surgery). That can happen even with a good vet, which ours is.
We're at fourteen months post-op having my Simon's remaining teeth extracted and he is doing great! No stomatitis recurrence yet!
On advise from my vet we started with a partial extraction, which helped for about 6 months. Don't even bother with the partial.
He's such a strong little trouper and is doing great without teeth. Needs some help with grooming in the way of frequent brushing.
