Hey everyone, I was brushing Grover's teeth this morning and he jerked away and I noticed blood on the brush. I looked in his mouth and he had a broken tooth! It is on the top left side and is one of his molars, I think. The think is that I'm not sure how long it has been there. I have not noticed anything amiss before now, but if I'm being honest, I haven't brushed his teeth in at least a month. (Lesson learned, I won't let these things go so long in the future). Poor guy has been eating normally and playing just as usual, but, God, I feel really bad thinking that he's had this issue for a while and I didn't notice!
But surely I would have noticed him chipping a tooth!! I don't remember any instance in which he cried out in pain or seemed sore or anything.
Now, the tooth looks brown around what I think is a hole in the tooth. I called my vet and made an appt for Monday (the earliest available). What should I expect? What are you're experiences with this issue?
Why does it look brown?
I feel just awful. Poor baby, I just dropped the ball on this one.
