So about a month ago, I noticed my dog Kahlua had chipped the probably the top 1/8th inch tip off of one of her lower canines. I could see the dark "pulp" in the center of the tooth. Long ago we stopped letting her play with stuff like cans and her metal bowls (see the video I posted last year in the dog thread) when it became obvious she could wreck her teeth being so crazy. But she still likes to sneak and grab large rocks and juggle 'em in in her mouth when no one's around. I've found golf ball sized rocks under my pillow.

So I took her to the vet who said she'd probably need the tooth capped and gave me the name of one of only two animal dentists locally that do such stuff. It took weeks to get in to see the guy and late last week, I finally got her looked at. Dentist tells me she'd likely need a root canal and crown depending on what an x-ray would show. The odds of infection already rotting out the inside of the tooth right up to the gum line was almost a certainty. The cost was going to be about $2,600. Luckily, my wife and I (ok, my wife suggested it and I said ok) got full coverage pet insurance when we got her and we'd only have to pay about 10% of the total but we'd still have to pay upfront the whole amount and wait about 2 months for the reimbursement.

So I take her in Monday morning for the procedure and late in the day I get the call to come and pick her up. Turns out her tooth has healed itself to a degree that the tip was sealed off, no infection at all and she didn't need a crown, much less a root canal. Total cost, about $300 (I'll get back about $270).

Didn't exactly make my day, but it was nice. Had an appt in Hollywood today and my nav system rerouted me through Wilton Pl....on the way back I put on some old demos and cruised by. It's a bitchin house notwithstanding the history.
