I was inspecting my dogs teeth today and noticed that the Bottom P4 Molar had a chip, it used to be pointy but now it isnt, when comparing to right side. I then noticed that his Upper P2 Molar is completely missing? Since they are both on the same side Im concerned. Did my dog completely fracture his tooth?
I touched the spot where the tooth should be and it feels like gum, but if I look real close I think I can see a white spot/dot possibly the remains of a tooth? Around that white spot are two small red dots indicating blood to me.
He doesnt have any trouble chewing anything hard. No change in attitude yet. Chip on the bottom premolar could've happened in the last 3 days. Chip seems like a very small enamel fracture. The missing P2 Molar is a bigger concern. I've honestly never noticed it before but I didn't really inspect his teeth too hard. In fact I was just beating myself up about how I let him chip his bottom tooth. I decided to check all his teeth and then noticed the missing one. I sort of recall the vet saying he had all his adult teeth when I took him in at like 6-8 months, but I don't think he took more than 5 to 10 seconds to look last time we went to the vet, and we went for another issue.
Dog is a 15 month old Doberman, Male, Unneutered 70# , Purchased from BYB. Had him since he was a puppy till now. Did not notice any heavy bleeding, changes in attitude, eating habits. Honestly could've happened anytime. On occasion I have given my dog bones and yak cheese as for the hardest chews I have ever given him.
Ive scheduled a vet visit. Anything else I can do to know for sure?
