Customer Question
pull toy he loves to...
I am baby sitting my on dachshund and we were playing with a pull toy he loves to fight with and he broke a tooth. It is on the right lower side of his mouth and barely hanging there right at the gum line.
Can we pull the rest of the way off or does he need vet attention and how quickly?
(tomorrow is Thanksgiving Day) We are in Chandler, AZ.......Terry

Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Altman and happy to assist you both today!

I am so sorry this happened on your watch! How old is Blue so I can determine if this is a baby or adult tooth?

Using this photo can you tell me which tooth it is, from left to right behind the canine (big tooth) being premolar 1 to 4?

If it is just the crown it will fall out on its own likely in the next 24 hours but the root is still under the gumline in the bone so Blue should visit his regular vet when they open again to form a plan and removal of the root. When the root is left behind and the crown is fractured off, it leaves the pulp and nerve supply vulnerable to pain and infection so it will need to be addressed

In the meanwhile please moisten his dry food for 10+ minutes and make sure it is lukewarm and no more tug of war or chewies until he can be evaluated

I hope this information makes sense but please let me know how else I can assist you both today
