Question:

: My dog has broken a tooth, chewing on a bone. What do I do. I am assuming she needs to have it checked out by a vet. It does not look infected. Part of the tooth is still there. What is the best action?


Response:

Hi Renee,

You assume right, that the best thing to do is have a vet check it out. The tooth can become infected, leading to further dental problems and infection.

Best,
Judy
