Last night when I was brushing Frankie's teeth, I noticed on both of his long upper canine teeth two yellow spots near his gums that I could not brush off and could not scrape off with my nails (my nails can scrape off almost anything)..his gums though are healthy looking pink color, but his gums did begin to bleed a little from the extra fussing (poor guy, and he was soo god while I did all of this!). I have been bad about brushing his teeth the last couple of months and when I had him at the vet in July the vet checked his teeth and said they were 'beautiful'..I can't imagine these spots appeared in a matter of week, but maybe..? shrug Did the vet maybe not notice them..?

I know google can be a wealth of helpful knowledge but it can also make a small problem seem 10x worse than it is.

Here are a couple pics, if that helps..is there something I can use at-home, is this nothing to worry about, should I take him to the vet..? thanks!!
