lost tooth!

This forum is for dog lovers seeking everyday advice and suggestions on health-related issues. Remember, however, that advice on a public forum simply can't be a substitute for proper medical attention. Only your vet can say assuredly what is best for your dog.

My dogs just got into a fight and one of them lost a front tooth. Do I need to take her to the vet?

Did your dog loose a whole tooth, or did it break off? And where is the tooth--not imbedded in the other dog's body somewhere?! There's not much that can be done if the whole tooth is gone, roots and all. Just watch for infection.

The entire tooth fell out. It's just an empty socket now. I thought at first it was one of their toe nails when I saw it laying on the couch, but when I went to pick it up, my dog (the one that lost it) ate it!

We'll keep an eye on it. You're right - we figured there really isn't much that could be done since the whole thing fell out.

Thanks!
