Ok… So, I think this is a really cool picture showing the immense size of the canine tooth and how much root they have. Most people don’t realize the crown to root ratio of this tooth! This was an infected tooth that needed to be extracted and had a secondary oronasal fistula. The dog recovered just fine after flushing the area and a gingival flap closure.. He had one other tooth extracted as well. Healthy mouth equals a healthy body! Pets need clean teeth too! #ilovedentistry.
I often recommend reading the ingredient list but there are more nuances to look for to determine if a pet food is good for your pet or is it just a marketing ploy.
We do! This little older fella was a rescue who obviously never had any dental care. I had to extract 18 teeth! All were loose and were waiving goodbye. Lol. But he is doing great and we got all of that nasty infection out of his mouth. Healthy mouth equals healthy body.
Pioneer, one of our resident office cats, loves that the big tank has new fishies! Here fishy, fishy, fishy!
I recommend not feeding your dog round bones. This kid was fine but we had to sedate him and cut the bone to get it off. It’s always amazing the things they can do sonetimes! I have seen this a few times through the years.

One of my veterinary classmates, Dr Anna Coffin, wrote this on her blog. I think it is an excellent summation so with her permission, I am reposting here. Great read if you have cats!
It’s getting really cold out there.
Everyone stay warm and don’t forget our 4 legged friends need help too. Good information.
