I don't think that her tooth had been bad, one day she was normal and the
next day I noticed that he mouth looked odd, the tooth had broke at the base
and was leaning forward so the upper lip couldn't go over it anymore. There
was a little tiny bit of blood around where the tooth had broken off. The
vet just finished it off by clipping the tooth off and then filing it down
to the gum line. I didn't think about the nerve and that it could rot or
get infected... As I said, Baby somehow managed to break the same tooth off
and it broke off at the gum line and looked fine like it had been missing
for a while as well...
