when i took teagan in the first week, the vet was being weird and acting scared of her (has since been GREAT w/taking teagan in around her issues that led to her HD diagnosis). on one of her bottom canines, the vet noted there was a stain.
i don't know why i never felt it myself - but i did this weekend. it is a brown spot - but it's not just a stain, it's an actual....hole? well, it doesn't go through, but you know what i mean - there is tooth missing there!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! it indents.
i've been googling rotten dog teeth and all that comes up if people w/dogs that have dirty teeth or teeth falling out - nothing like this.
teagan eats raw, with stuff like chicken, she gets through it as quickly as luc, usually. i gave them bone in the blade steaks on saturday, and she takes longer w/the bone than him on something like that. but she can do it. and she's constantly carrying toys and tugging w/me, and seems to be okay.
has anyone experienced this? what did you do? i wondered about having the tooth pulled but she doesn't seem particularly bothered by it. other than this, her teeth are great.
