NorthfieldNick Posted July 6, 2012 Report Share Posted July 6, 2012 I found a hunk of tooth on the floor this morning, and matched it to the stump in Hoot's mouth. He's broken his incisor next to his right canine clean off at the gum line. I thought perhaps he did it on his kennel in the fireworks, but there's no damage to the kennel. I think he actually cracked the tooth crashing into a fence post on Monday, and it broke off today. He's eating normally fr him, which is infrequently and on his own schedule. Acting normally, doesn't seem to be bothering him at all. Soonest I can get him to the vet is Monday or Tuesday. I talked to the vet this morning, and they mentioned extraction. I've had two people (who use the same vet as I do) tell me that their dogs had broken teeth that did not have to come out. Apparently, they sort of heal over. Anyone have any experience with this? I could do without a huge vet bill right now, and having Hoot out of commission will delay a much-needed move for my market lambs. Thanks!
