Hoshi’s chicken dinner

Here’s a picture of one of Hoshi’s raw chicken meals. It’s slightly different from usual because the bone is ground–Hoshi just had some teeth pulled. It’s a skinless thigh with the fat removed. I added a few slices of gizzard and topped it with ground thigh bone.

Hoshi had 3 teeth pulled

Hoshi had a teeth cleaning today. I was nervous about having it done because of the anesthesia. He also had one premolar and two incisors pulled–which I wasn’t expecting. I’m glad he’s home safe. I think he peed himself at the vet. After he had his first cleaning, he’s been afraid of the vet.

I haven’t been brushing his teeth regularly until lately. He’s always so resistant to having it done, but I haven’t been giving him a choice. He won’t let me use a regular toothbrush, so I use finger toothbrush to clean his teeth. The finger toothbrush is bulky and doesn’t clean well.

I had to prepare Hoshi’s dinner differently because of his tooth extractions. I ground his chicken bones with a hand grinder. The grinder won’t fit our kitchen counters, so I attached it to Hoshi’s grooming table. Honestly, I wasn’t sure if it would work. I ground the bones four times using the largest blade.
