    We've never been advised to wait (to control an infection) before extracting a bad tooth. However, a canine dentist may advise otherwise. Most, if not all, Vets are trained to extract teeth. I've never heard of anyone(any Vet) filling a canine tooth but I suppose it's not out of the question. That leads me to question the need for a canine dentist, 'cept for issues with the jaw, perhaps.
    Canine medicine, however, is becoming more and more specialized. Begs the question, is it more about the quality of care or more about the $...a little of both, maybe? Hmmmmm

    Who says Bulldogs can't fly?

    I agree, any vet should be able to extract the tooth. My dog just lost her front teeth in a fight with my other dog

    @g8erjackie Have missed you and the kids! How is Ruckus? Any news?

    Hey everyone! Thanks for all the tips, I know I know, I disappeared again, I need to set my notifications for Tapatalk to nudge me daily soooo Prince Rukus started acting totally normal, like nothing was wrong, heís eating, drinking, playing with toys, chewing antlers.... we think he grabbed a sharp stick outside and cut the inside of his mouth and that was the issue. Iím still taking him to the specialty doggie dentist I think, since it seems he might have a bad tooth based on the X-rays....but Iím reading and researching because Iím nervous about having him put under for anything, which would have to happen if they cleaned his teeth.

    Otherwise, weíre good! Ruckus and Regina are loving the fall weather thatís starting to creep in. They can finally take the long walks they love so much. I, however, am not thrilled with the end of flip flop weather.
