|well, as much as I would love to take moose to the vet right now,I really can't. Not yet! Hopefully soon though. He DID have a dental exam last year (or so) and the vet said his teeth were okay then. There does seem to be one tooth that is dark; is that like in humans, when we get a cavity our teeth get a "black" area (plaque, etc)?
I have heard this wet food v dry food issue a million times.I've done the research (online) too. Moose has always gotten water on his food and it never sits longer than a few minutes. He gobbles his food up no problem still. Also, he doesn't get crap food. He eats all natural stuff. These days its Taste of the Wild, salmon, or BG (before grain) fish version. he does get chews and treats but they are natural too. He gets bones and natural chews, such as pigs ears and meaty bones.
It COULD be the disease where his gums go over, but I know that the top front teeth have to had fallen out. There's no way his gums covered his teeth in like a week.
I will cont to do what i am doing and get him into see a vet as soon as I can. he doesnt appear to be in any discomfort and he still loves to chew on his bones & etc. thanks folks!
