Really, Betelgeuse? Anesthesia and extraction of two broken teeth after only two short years on the planet. Apparently Betelgeuse has "weak teeth." That's an official diagnosis. Or she's been chewing on rocks. That's a speculation.
$382.00 for the teeth extraction (and accompanying anesthesia, antibiotics, catheter and IV fluids). And another $70.00 on top of that for a leptosporosis vaccine and bordetella injection booster because -- might as well -- she was due for them and already knocked out.
And can you believe I didn't even get to keep the teeth?
