I have a 15-year old Miniature Dachshund who, for the most part, is in excellent health. She still thinks she's a puppy, and jumps around, and is generally crazy. Well, she recently had a pretty bad abscess of her fourth upper premolars which resulted in the infection breaking through her face, under her eye. She's treated now with antibiotics, 50mg amoxicillin. The infection has at least visually cleared up. Well, I had her to two vets for opinions. Both are saying she should have the teeth pulled. Problem is, this requires general anesthesia. Both have expressed minimal concern about putting her under for the surgery at her age. I've tried to Google some answers, but I get SO much unrelated stuff it's hard to decipher. To make matters worse, her blood work had some issues. Kidney function was great, but several liver enzymes (not sure which ones) were quite high. The vet suggested this is due to the infection and shouldn't hinder the surgery or her recovery. My question is do I risk the surgery on a dog her age? Do I just maintain her on antibiotics until the infection overpowers them and then... well... you know. I'd appreciate some responses from any vets / doctors / medical professionals, and from animal nuts like myself in general. Thanks!
