Monty Broke his Tooth

Monty will be 15 weeks old tomorrow!

Every day I check his mouth to see if any of his baby teeth are falling out yet. Today he was missing a canine tooth! Those don’t fall out first!

Somehow he has broken off his lower right canine tooth. Probably from biting at his xpen or his crate, or maybe it’s stuck in the cat, I don’t know.

There are two shards of it left, and one is wiggly. Most people’s advice has been to leave it and it’ll probably fall out on it’s own. Baby teeth are fragile and it’s not really uncommon for them to break.

Monty goes to the vet next Friday for his 16th week appointment – booster and rabies shots – so I’ll have the vet take a peak then. In the meantime I’ll just make sure it doesn’t get infected.
