Customer Question

I'm a nurse. Can I pull the tooth myself ? Would topical anesthesia be enough ? Would the vet put her to sleep to extract it?

HI again....This tooth can be pulled if it is loose without topical anesthesia. Brush peroxide on the gum after this is removed and Annie will do well. It will be better for Annie to not have this tooth because there is infection surrounding this tooth and it will be gone when this is removed.

Good luck!!
