This dog makes me shake my head sometimes...
Friday as I was getting him out of his kennel I noticed he had a white piece of something hanging out of his mouth, he was trying to swollow it, so I quickly grabbed his snout and noticed that his little incisor tooth on his left side of his mouth was hanging on by just a thread.
So, I yanked it, and put it in a little plastic baggy and called the vet. Just like a human, if you don't get the entire tooth - it can abscess causing all sorts of issues. So, Saturday afternoon Aquaman and I headed to the vet, and subsequently made an appointment for Monday morning for a tooth extraction and a dental cleaning. I just shook my head.
Luckily when Eric got there, they took a closer look at the tooth sight and deemed the procedure unnecessary and sent him home with a doggy treat. He was thrilled, Eric and I were both pretty relieved. Neither of us like the idea of putting him under anesthesia.
People wonder why we don't want kids when we get this nervous over a tooth procedure for the dog. Yeesh! But, See that little under bite? That left (your right) tooth is long gone, and it makes me a little sad!
