So, yet another question..... About 2 weeks ago, I noticed that Jackson's left canine tooth seems to be turning a light purple. The gums look normal, the tooth is not loose and does'nt seem to bother him. I have given him a rawhide and although he seems to favor the right side of his mouth, he does chew on the left sometimes. We throw the ball and sticks to him but, no sticks for at least a month. His breath is a little bad but not super foul. I happened to have a dentist appt. last monday and I asked her. She said in humans that is a sign that the tooth is dead and root canal or exctraction is usually the case in humans. Has anybody else experienced this and have any ideas or suggestions? Obviously he needs to go see the vet ASAP. I think our vets where I live really leave alot to be desired. Any input would be greatly appriciated!
Yes, it is an adult tooth. Jackson is about 5 years old. We don't show him but, I am wondering.... Will it just fall out on his own? Any idea why this would happen?. I was hoping that it would just "go away" even though I knew this was probably not the case. Is it possible that it won't fall out? Thank you for your info!
