My 14 week old appears to have broken one of his teeth. Pardon me for not knowing the correct name for the tooth, but it's one of the big pointy ones on the bottom. As far as I can tell it didn't fall out, but rather broke close to the gum. There's a bit of tooth left and I can see the nerves inside the tooth. He's not whining, but he's a little sedate this morning...not as active as usual. Does this warrant a trip to the vet, or should I just keep an eye on it? I know it will soon fall out, but I don't want him to be in pain in the meantime.
I took him to the vet. She said that since it's broken so close to the gum, it needs to be removed. We scheduled to have it done on Thursday, and he's going to get neutered at the same time (a bit earlier than expected, but better to get it all done at once). Until then, she put him on antibiotics and a pain killer. Glad I went!
