    Default Sancho broke his tooth!

    Hello all,
    Sancho was playing outside in the backyard.... I was out there, reading the Kindle and watching him. He was putting around in the grass and shrubs as usual. No yelping or anything weird. Then he came over to me kind of hyper and wanting to play. He put his head on my knee and I saw blood all over the side of his mouth and my pants!

    I immediately saw that the left long tooth on his bottom jaw was broken and barely hanging on in the gum My poor baby... I feel so awful. I was there, watching and didn't see that he had somehow found a bungee cord with plastic hooks in the mud and must have tried to pull it and broke his tooth.

    I'm so worried. Can/will it get infected? What should we feed him? Should we give him some baby Tylenol?? Will he be okay? Is there a chance it was a baby tooth and will come back and I'm just being an overly panicky first-time dog mom?

    I'm literally crying over here... I feel so awful that I missed that and now he has to not have his tooth

    NO matter how much we watch them things like this can happen. Is there a 24 hour emergency vet in your area. call them and at least they will tell you what you can and cant' do. Good luck

    Ok, well after researching this (maybe I should have done that first, but I was seriously panicking and hating myself), it looks like it was a canine baby tooth. I sure hope so! Poor guy.

    He is 4.5 months old. His other front teeth are coming in right now, so there's a good chance it was a baby tooth. Or, that's what I'm hoping.

    My hubby is at a vet's conference right now, so he said he will ask around there, since our vet will charge us $100 just for a phone call on a Sunday :-/

    Aubie is the same age and she's been losing some baby teeth. I think it's just a baby tooth; she hasn't even lost her bottom teeth yet, just her top. The next teeth grow in really fast. The next day we already saw the next tooth coming in and it wasn't there the day before. He should have another tooth popping up in its spot in a day or so.

    I'm pretty confident that it's just a baby tooth that came out, he at that age. Usually you don't even notice them change bc they swallow them. There's the root as well so it's not really broken.

    No need to see a vet, this is normal. just like a child the baby teeth come out and some blood may be involved. Don't panic. The adult tooth will push out the rest of it when it comes through. Never ever give a dog Tylenol. 81 mg. of aspirin is ok. but I don't think you even need that in this instance.

    Whew! Thank you guys so much.

    I will stick with normal teething toys. Thanks so much for the heads up on Tylenol. I was wondering about that, too, since I've never actually given any pain medication to a pet.

    You guys rock... thanks for saving the day (for me and for Sancho, who is passed out in his bed while I'm here worrying away!)
