|*gigantic sigh* Uuuuuggghhhhhh....
Okay. So, I had bought 3 big basted bones from a guy at a dog show a while back. I gave the first two to Nighque. Before I knew it, she had eaten the WHOLE thing with only a tiny piece of bone left (which I threw away). I thought I'd just let her chew the softer pieces off and lick the basted stuff off and then throw it away. I knew there was a possibility of her breaking a tooth, but of course, I thought, naaah, that won't happen. I had checked her teeth after the second one and they were all fine. I didn't want to waste 3 measly bucks and just throw the last one away, *kicks self repeatedly* so I gave it to her and I was never going to buy any other things that could possibly break a dogs tooth. So she ate the last one, and I didn't think to check her teeth right away. So here it is about a month since she's had that last bone and we just got her spayed yesterday. So I'm petting her and decide to check her teeth. Well, woopdeedoo, how dumb am I? Her top left molar is broken badly. There is a crack on both the left and right sides of the tooth that travel from the bottom of the tooth all the way up to the gum and the middle pulp is all exposed and pretty much black. Dx I know, I know, I'm pissed at myself. PLEASE don't lecture me or tell me that I shouldn't have fed her the bones. I know that. And I feel stupid. Because I am. And now I've got to learn a lesson the hard way. And it was the last one that did it. Ugh... I hate myself right now. I'm 17 and my mom owes me a couple hundred bucks. And I've got $40 on hand. So there goes my money. I've looked it up but couldn't find anything. So I was wondering how much it would cost to remove the tooth. I know it differs from place to place, but can anyone tell me generally how much it might cost? Can't call the vet 'til tomorrow, and I'm impatient.
Again, I know, I'm stupid. I really need to to start listening to that little voice in my head when it tells me "DON'T DO IT!". Gah, I'm so aggravated.
