Re: Jesse broke a canine tooth
Kyra had a canine broken at about 9 months, and I did have a cap done. At 9+ it is still there, did 7 years of regular bitework with that cap too! With an older dog who is not doing bitework, I would think that a cap is not necessary - it is not a growing tooth that needs to be protected. If necessary, a simple extraction should not be a big deal. Really, I think the risks of anesthesia are not as high as many cite, I know that in my friends equine clinic, in 15 years of near daily surgery, only 2 times did they loose an animal under anesthesia.
