dentist trip

Thursday Toby had his first dentist appointment. He did GREAT! He sat still the whole time while the hygienist (whose name was the same as our kitty's) got the "bugs" out of his teeth. The dentist is strictly a pediatric dentist, and had a TV with Seasame Street going and stickers and she was great.
Unfortunately, he does have 2 cavities on the top and some enamel degradation on the bottom. We're going to check back in 3 months but will need them taken care of - probably under anesthesia. I am terrified of him being put under...but don't really know if there's any way around it. They don't want him to move and get cut with the drill.....
So, we will now start fluoride treatments, because in my opinion, it's needed.
