Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question. Often, they will lose a tooth while chewing on a toy or rawhide because that particular tooth is loose or infected. It would be best to have your vet examine Ziggy's mouth since he may have others that may need treatment. If this is the only tooth, your vet may put Ziggy on antibiotics but it will most often heal without any treatment. Feed Ziggy soft food for a couple days since this will be sore but nothing else will need to eb done. His own body will fill in this defect. Does that make sense to you? Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please REPLY so I can clarify for you. Sincerely, ***** *****
