Bau: Not The Elizabethan Collar Again!

bau in the dumps


I am so much in the dumps. A few days ago I had surgery in my mouth. Right now I’m wearing that ridiculous Elizabethan collar, although it isn’t my first time and I’m kind of getting used to it.

Maltese are notorious for being late bloomers. Their baby teeth often come in far later than other breeds and take much longer to fall out – if they fall out at all. These toy dogs also suffer from crowding plus tartar and plaque buildup. They are known for gingivitis, periodontal disease and early tooth loss.

Here’s a link to an article about the ten dogs prone to dental disease.

  1. Oh, poor Bau! I am sorry to hear you have The Collar on! Your mouth will feel better soon, though. And I know that collar will come off Just as soon as possible. Hang in there!

  2. Aaah, poor Bau. That little guy is so loved and when he hurts we all hurt. (It seemed cruel to “like” this post though.) I guess he’ll be eating low-fat gruel for a while, huh? Good thing he’s not a husky or it’d give new meaning to “Mush, mush.” ❤ a little canine humor . . . to cheer him up. 🙂 Blessings to you both for a quick recovery.

    • Thank you, Ellie. He’s eating soft food (which he tends to love more than his regular kibble). He’s picking up more energy and I take the cone off his neck as long as I supervise him so that he doesn’t start pulling at the stiches in his mouth.
      Have a great weekend. ❤


  3. Dear Carol
    I feel bad for you and your mouth. I can identify with young having to wear that collar. I injured my spine and have to wear a brace that holds me like an iron lung. Poor us. But we will
    Be ok. Thanks for the post.
