    I completely understand Cassie! I don't like the doctor much nor do my boys!
    Hopefully, it is nothing serious.

    Cassie, you will need your pearly whites all your life, so hang in there with the vet. Nobody likes going to the doctor!

    I really am afraid that she is going to loose those two canines. The bottom one is growing at about a 45 degree angle. The top on points almost straight forward.

    Wow that is a bummer. Are those two teeth on the same side, top and bottom? I wonder how that happens. Maybe a vet dentist can help save those teeth - if you can find one I would recommend it. The bottom canines especially help keep their tongue in their mouths.... Good luck, I hope she can be helped.

    That's too bad! I'm assuming she has lance canines? If she still has room in her mouth for them and they don't impede on her bottom teeth I'd wait to pull them. Piper has lance canines and at 8 months we were all set to have him go under the knife. He'd had his first needle to relax him when the vet decided to have a quick look with the dental hygienist and she asked me to wait a few months and we'd check again (she's an awesome vet). We ended up pulling an insizor on either side of his top canines when he was neutered at 2 but fortunately we were able to keep the canines.

    It looks like it might be lance canines. I'm not sure. That is why we are taking her to the vet.

    The vet is no fun! I hope those teefies get to stay in her mouth.
