A few weeks ago, I was brushing her teeth and noticed one of them looked nasty. So I made sure to brush everyday to see if I could get it looking better. A few days later, it looked WORSE. It also looked a bit jagged, and when I felt it I confirmed that it was broken.
A trip to the vet confirmed that the tooth needed to be fixed or removed. After briefly contemplating a root canal and crown (whoa $$), and making sure she wouldn't have any issues without the tooth, we scheduled an appointment for removal.

On Wednesday morning, Tess went in
That same morning, we noticed Ed's muzzle, usually a semi-bold pink, was so pale it matched his white fur. We checked his gums and the skin around his eyes - all very pale. He also seemed so much more mellow that usual. While he ate fine, we decided to take him in. A blood test found an elevated liver value. While not an immediate emergency, we're keeping track of what he's doing and trying to identify anything poisonous he might have ingested.

Needless to say, Wednesday was a bit too eventful for us!
