Hi all! I wanted to follow up with the case of Kira, the Aussie with severe tooth resorption and a fractured mandible. She has been wearing a tape muzzle for 4 weeks and is doing well. Here are radiographs. The mandible feels stable but I can still feel the indentation in the cortical bone on ventral mandible. I applied a new tape muzzle with the plan to remove in 2 weeks. Do you think it’s necessary to take another radiograph in 2 weeks? I am leaning towards not taking one, because much of the bone has healed.
