|wolfy dog||Give him a couple of bones every few days and he should be fine. That dog doesn't look it had ped. disease. Just a thin red line from what I saw. But it is the start. Some dogs develop this earler than others. I had a 14 year old who I never had to clean his teeth. But another one every other month it seems like .|

David, my dog is 13 months old. He has tarter, and yes it irritated his gum line. I don't think he has periodontal disease though.

The gums are red and swallen, that fact that these spots are in the same place suggests dual pathway of tissue distruction.

|gsdlover91||Bought a dental scaler today, teeth are good as new! Was tarter, gross. Seems like where the tarter built up on his canines, it is a little rough, explains why the tarter just built up there so fast. Now I have the scaler on hand though, and he is super calm about me doing it, so I'll just keep an eye on those two teeth. Saved me a k9 dental visit, thanks guys!|

|yggdrasila||yeah I second that if that's not a divot and it's raised at all it's tartar/calculus, pop it off with a dental scaler you can get on on ebay for like 6 bucks or use whatever scrapey thing you have at hand|

|wolfy dog||To me that looks like tartar. WD's were more vague and it was in the tooth enamel. Yours looks more on top. It looks like the gum line is reddish (next to the tooth) but maybe it is the picture. But if not it could explain that it is tartar which inflames the gums and you should be able to chip it off or give hi a good recreational raw bone to see iit comes off. Or ask your vet.|

They are in the same spot, on both upper canines. As far as I can tell, they arent on any other teeth...

|Al Pozzolini||The negative effect of antibiotics is that they kill both bad and good "biotics" in the digestive tract. A simple thing you could do is give your dog some plain yogurt. It couldn't hurt. Yogurt is great for your bones anyway.|

|GatorDog||It could definitely be the antibiotics. Do you have any pics?|
