Newt broke a canine tooth, one we had removed, the other one, we were told to watch for infection. I noticed yesterday that the adult tooth has come in, but the baby tooth never fell out. I have a call into the vet, but wondering if this happens and the tooth eventually falls out, or will be looking into having this baby tooth removed? Receptionist said that they normally remove then when they are neutered, but we didn't have plans on neutering him at this point.
I would think it would fall out on its own.
With kids - the tooth usually gets pushed out eventually - I am not sure that is the same with dogs.

Cow hooves. They smell like crap, but thats what my canine dentist says usually works, and it did for us for one tooth, and the other one was removed before Ruby's first show. Quick, painless and out like lightening. She was back to her antics two hours later.

My Dutchboy was about 9 months old when I adopted him. He had a baby tooth and an adult tooth like you described. We waited a little bit to see if it would come out on it's own and it never did. He had to have it surgically removed.
Keep an eye on it. Sometimes they come out, sometimes they don't. If in a week or so it doesn't come out, I'd have it pulled.
The only thing I'll say about cow hooves, Boomer broke off a tooth on one. Mine only get Nylabones and only the original hambone flavor.

Thanks for the responses, still waiting for the vet to call me back. He has a recheck appt next week for another issue he was having. I swear this dog is digging me a slow grave.
