Exclamation Broken teeth?

I think Tofu my Robo broke her top two teeth.

I noticed qhen she had food in her pouch and a piece of sunflower seed hangung out and it kept wobbling round and she couldnt seem to move it or something. This was ffor like 5 or more minutes. I took her out and she unpouched everything possibly dislodging the sunglower seed cus it was then on the gloor.

I tried to see in her mouth and it looks as though her top teeth have broken. They reach no longer than her top lip. And they arent pointy they are flat.

Will she be ok? Ive given her some cucumber because its soft. I can get baby food if I need. should I go to the vet? I couldn't find any chipped bits of tooth to confirm byt I think she might have. Please any advice you have would be great!

Default Re: Broken teeth?

I think as long as the root of her teeth haven't come out completely, she will be fine. I would take her to a vet if her tooth has been chipped, because the vet can clip them so they can grow evenly again. They will grow back in time though. I'm not sure if she should have baby food though. I would consult a vet for advice. You can always call them and they could tell you the best thing to do without consultation.

I hope Tofu's teeth grow back completely.
Best wishes x

If she isn't managing to eat hard food at the moment then it would be fine to give a little baby food & or porridge, keep a close eye on her to see how she's managing, the teeth may just grow back ok but if not then the upper & lower teeth won't wear down properly & will need to be clipped or burred regularly.
Without seeing her it's hard to say whether a vet trip is necessary at this point or not but I think I would be inclined to take her.
