hi all,

It's been a while since I last posted. I am happy to announce that the beautiful princess sookingtons is still with us and is now the ripe old age of 8.5! Bless her.

She still eats and poops fine, there are no signs of arthritis or mobility issues however she does need a lot more cleaning as she wees a lot and lays in it!

My query is this - she constantly has a wet chin. I know this is probably down to her teeth having having her treated at the vet before. She had no problem eating, but is there anything I could be doing for her that I'm not already? Especially to alleviate dribble chin.

I completely understand your reply, however the only option if it is her teeth (which I strongly suspect it is), would be surgery. She would need anaesthetic for that, and at her age I'm not prepared to take the risk.
She is otherwise healthy and well.
