|Congrats on the adoption! Such a perfect name for a hound!!
I read your previous thread and am really glad that you are able to get her in so soon. She will feel soooo much better!
If the food you found for her is a complete one rather than one just for supplemental feeding, then I'd stick with it, especially if she is happy to eat it.
Good luck tomorrow!
Both of my cats have been through multiple dentals (as seniors) and did just fine. The recovery can be a little tough because they are really sore and swollen (especially if there are multiple extractions and lots of stitches), but it's so worth it for their long-term health. For my two, it took about 2 weeks or so for stitches to dissolve and about two months before the gums were completely healed (no redness at all). They were back to eating boneless minced raw within days of the dental.
Do ask for liquid meds...pilling a creature with a very sore mouth is really stressful on everyone involved.
