Broken baby tooth??
 
Mishka has started teething, and she has broken one of her canines in the process of getting her back teeth out.... It is broken in half.... I can't tell if it hurts her or not yet, I will know more at her next meal time... She takes any excuse to not eat. Any advice?

The nerve and blood vessel are exposed. Should I worry about infection?

My girl Athena broke her baby canine tooth when she was a baby. I rushed her to the vet and my vet advised me not to worry as it will come out before it can cause any problems. But if she is in visible pain take I would take her to vet asap.

Ruby has chipped pretty much ALL of her baby teeth as she is a kennel biter! I have her crate now coated in bitter Apple to stop this before her real teeth come in.

The vet saw her teeth and said its ok.

We dont have the red and we watching for inflamed gums or problems eating.
