Snickers is enjoying her new hard rubber toy. She is still playing catch even though she has the cracked tooth. We have decided to have the tooth pulled. I think about how teeth feel after they are crowned and canaled, and all the things that can go wrong. A human can tell you if things didn't go well, but not a dog. This dog will get along just fine with one less tooth in her mouth. We have made the appointment for Monday. I have some pain pills for her that the vet gave me. Even before I knew she had the cracked tooth, I explained that I felt she was having some pain. I guess I was right, but was very wrong about the cause. This is a good reason to see your vet if you think your dog is not acting in the usual manner. I'm glad we have experts to help us communicate with our pets.
