Well, it looks like Rowdy will be short one premolar in a week. We went to the vet today and actually she was very unhelpful. It was at our regular office that I love but I hadn’t seen this particular vet before. Rowdy went ahead and got his yearly stuff while he was there, which was good. But when it came to his tooth she hardly looked at it and just told me that they should do a cleaning since his back teeth have some plaque buildup. She didn’t even mention his tooth really, or the word “extraction” until she was escorting me back to the front desk and I didn’t have time to ask questions and I left very confused. To the point that when the receptionist asked me what we were doing next time I had to say, “I honestly don’t know.” Once she asked the vet, she explained it to me. So I guess they will do a dental exam and cleaning and while they are in there she will assess the tooth more thoroughly and likely extract it. Or maybe just part of it? Again, not totally clear. All in all, not the best vet experience I’ve had. I know that broken teeth are probably totally routine for her but they aren’t for me and Rowdy so I just wish she would have talked through things a little more.
Poor guy has a broken tooth. Has anyone else had this problem, and what came of it? It’s his 4th premolar on the top, the biggest tooth. I can see and wiggle the part that is broken off, it’s small and on the back end of the tooth. He’s never shown any symptoms but I feel terrible, the broken part looks pretty dead so it must have been this way for a while. I hope he hasn’t been in pain all this time. I will be calling the vet tomorrow to try and get him in this week.
