    DefaultSam broke an upper canine (added pics)

    I swear, if it's not one thing, it's another.* I was just giving Sam some belly scritches as he wiggled all around, he was on his back and trying to grab a toy that was laying near his head.* I noticed that his left top canine tooth looked funny.* I got him to stay semi-still while I took a look, and yep, it's broken off kind of at an angle.* I can see light pink in the center of the tooth.* It doesn't seem to be bothering him.* I'll take him to the vet tomorrow.

    Here's some pics, it was hard to get a good one:

    Oh no! Poor Sam. If you can see pink, then it probably got to the pulp, and even if it doesn't seem like he's in pain, he probably is.

    I'm hoping it didn't get to the pulp, otherwise, they'll suggest extraction or root canal. (Zoe's root canal was quite expensive.)

    Good thoughts for Sam. Please keep us updated.

    Brenda, Sam's canine doesn't look as bad as Zoe's, but it does look as though it got to the pulp.* Does it bleed when he chews hard things?

    Zoe's pulp was defintely visible and much of the tooth was gone (at least 1/2, I'd say), and when she chewed on her pizzlestick, it would bleed (not a lot, but visible).

    Luckily, they use their molars for eating food.

    Keep me posted.* (leaving work soon, so will check later this pm or tomorrow)
