Customer Question

My lab is 5 months old and tonight we were playing tug with his rope toy and his botom canine came out. There was a bit of blood but unsure if it's baby or adult? Would this be just his baby?

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

Are you able to include a photo of the tooth? It is difficult to know whether it was a baby or adult tooth, at 5 months old the canines should be erupting and those baby teeth lost but if you have the tooth that would be great to confirm this is the case
