|Comet's Mom talking here: I'm so upset for my baby. He somehow got a chip on his front teeth which I noticed when I brushed them and I mentioned it to the Vet's office when I was making an appointment for his annual checkup. Their reply was that they're going to pull his teeth!!
There was no mention of trying to saving them, or watching to see if they cause gum problems. My dog's gums look normal, not puffy or bloody, and the teeth don't hurt my dog when I touch them. He is eating fine and not ever refusing food or favoring one side of his mouth over the other. They are my dogs two front teeth and nothing has changed in nine months since I noticed them. So I ask, is pulling a dog's chipped teeth normal, even if it's not causing a problem?
I and my dog appreciate any and all information/advice you can give me on this!
