Oh no! I have more bad news! I might have to get one of my top, left molar extracted. I'm scared! It all started when Daddy was trying to brush my teeth this past Sunday. He was doing his routine thing until I refused to let him brush my left side. Daddy thought it was a little weird and he told Mama that I acted "Ape S#!t." He then checked my teeth again today and saw that I had lost half of a molar. When he checked and compared both sides of my mouth, it was confirmed that my left top P4 molar was half gone.Then, Daddy called the Vet Dentist and asked questions. The Vet told him over the phone that my broken molar may have to be extracted! We have an appointment for this Thursday in the early morning for a consultation, and possible extraction...Mama is really scared! As you can see. The arrow points at the tooth where there is nerve exposure. The circle tooth is suppose to be pointed.
No one really knows when this happened. Below you will see that I was still chewing my new Nylabone on May 20th.I've always been a super chewer and love to chew hard things, but no one really thought I would lose a tooth over it!
Mama has now thrown away all my Nylabones and HARD beef shank bones. Mama and Daddy are both totally heart broken and is worried sick that I might be in pain. I am actually my jolly ole self. If you saw me, you wouldn't know that I have a half broken tooth in my mouth. I still eat just fine and am loving life. No one would have known that I had this problem until Daddy decided to brush my teeth. Now I have to go to the Doggy Dentist and lose a part of myself. =(
Wish me luck!
CoCo's Mama here: From now on out, we are going to supervise CoCo like a hawk when she chews on anything. We have also thrown away all her hard chewies and do not plan on buying anymore Nylabones. Warning to all other heavy chewers out there...YOU CAN BREAK YOUR TEETH! We will keep everyone posted as this progress.
