Lola broke a tooth
So last night Lola was playing with her wubba and I was holding it and she tugged it a little too hard and broke one of her top front little teeth. It's not completely out but it's definitely broken. It bled a little, but she's not hurting.

Question is, she has a vet appointment on Wednesday for her shots. Is it something that I should call and see if they can move up and get her in today or would it be okay to wait till then? She's not in pain and is playing and eating fine, but I don't want it to cause problems such as infection or anything like that.

She's 17 weeks old so getting a picture of it is about impossible.

Is it a baby tooth?

I wouldn't worry about it. Keep an eye on it of course and if you see any obvious discomfort do what you gotta do, but that tooth is probably not holding on for much longer anyway.

Okay thanks!

I just tried to look at it closer, and it appears to be a baby tooth barely hanging and an adult tooth coming in? I'll attempt to get a picture when she is sleeping.

It's no biggie - the baby canines do this often when they are ready to come will come out on it's own.

Yup those little needle teeth can't handle the increase in puppy jaw power.
