Meet Tamm

Tamm came into care underweight and with a history of not being a good eater at all, certainly did not chew bones. A few days in care and Tamm 's face on one side blow up like a balloon and thinking maybe a bee sting he went straight to the vets where it was revealed that he had a terribly infected tooth and several major ulcers on the inside of his mouth. This long term infection started where the thumb is on the picture and had travelled all the way under the skin and was coming out where the 3 sores are near his nose. Tamm had to have emergency surgery to remove the pockets of ulcerated infection and also his back tooth. He is recovering well, definately got an appetite now and is making up for lost time in that regard, eats anything now, a massive bowl full very night including chicken necks.
