Subject: [ferrethealth] Lower Canine Tooth

Dee I don't see where anyone else has commented on your letter so I'm going to. My second little one was bought from a pet store and taken back cause she wouldn't eat. She was then bought by a lady that did rescue who took her to her vet and he discovered that she either had a birth defect or had had her lower jaw broken cause her lower canine was growing into the roof of her mouth which is why she wouldn't eat. He pulled both her lower canines so she wouldn't be lopsided and once healed she grew to be one of the sweetest ferts I've had over the years. She ate everything the others did and never had a problem. She lived to be almost 7 and passed from unrelated causes. I don't know if that helps you or not, but never heard of a ferret with braces. LOL

I have a male kit (born April 1) who has a lower canine that is
protruding outward. One vet said he'd pull it. Is there any other
option? I can't imagine braces for a crazy kit, but, hey, you never

Can anyone give me more information on this condition?
