Poopdeck has a tooth pulled due to a vertical fracture. I have read posts in the past about tooth fracture, but is a vertical fracture common? I think it might have happened when P.D. unexpectedly leapt out of a shopping cart and landed with a thud. There was no cry out at the time and has been no indication of pain. I am glad I took him into the vet....Gee my wallet feels so much lighter as well!
