Tooth Help
 
I been keeping an eye on this tooth for a while and was wondering if this is something to worry about.

She is not showing any signs of distress or pain. She is about to turn two years old.

Small black crack surrounded by the brown area. She is on a raw diet and has very clean teeth beside this.

Her other teeth are clean, but this tooth looks to me like tarter, which is strange just on the one tooth. I guess you may be concerned about a possible crack, which I would be. Even though it doesn't seem to bother her, she could be chewing around it and that isn't noticeable, I would have the vet check it out.

If you think there is a crack, definitely see the vet.


Hans gets tartar in the exact same spot.

I purchased one of these things and it works really well.

Very carefully scrape. If you think she will let you, it might be worth a try.
