I would find a diff vet, to be honest, if she had a hernia, your vet should have known and fixed it DURING the spay and for a vet to even talk about braces for your pup when it is not needed is a red flag. Sorry to sound harsh, but your vet does not seem to be working in yours and roo's best interest and seems to be in the interest in money. Just my opinion.........

No no, it wasn't there before the spay at all, it has just shown up, yesterday I noticed it. Vet said it could be swelling still or soemthing that will go away or it maybe a hernia, so she said to wait until the 16th to get it reassesed...and its not braces like we wear, its a stupid thing in her mouth to help push the tooth out without taking the tooth. Regradless if that tooth doesn't repair itself and start growing right, I will not be putting anything in there to fix it, she can live without that canine if it comes down to it lol.

She is actually a really good vet, and only suggested that peice because I really want Ruby to have nice teeth, my Quincy pie has like 5 teeth in his entire mouth (and he isn't even 6 yet), Hairless crested have a gene for poor dentin, so their teeth fall out, which is why you have probably seen pics with their toungues falling out of their mouth, no teeth to hold that toungue in... so she only suggested it I think to show that there was a way....a way i'm not willling to persue, but a way. And I think the only reason she mentioned it was b/c I made a joke about a dog needing braces....lol "actually...." she said lol.
OOOOO! Ok, I digress! Sorry, but I though you were saying it was there in the first place and the braces I agree not really a ness. Now that that is cleared up lol, her tummy should be fixed if that is a hernia, and I hope she is better.
