    Default Pug Lost Tooth

    Hi guys,
    My five year old pug Sir Paul just randomly lost a tooth this morning. Has this happened to anyone? I noticed his breath has been a little stinky but nothing concerning. I give him a dentastix every night after he eats dinner. He is acting normal, not acting like he is in pain, his gums aren't bleeding. Can this be a serious issues? I looked online and just got terrified reading that it is not normal for an adult dog to lose a tooth. I have attached a picture, the tooth certainly looks like it is infected. I really don't want to put him under anthesia for a teeth cleaning, it just makes me so nervous to do so.

    I'd get to a vet. Something serious could be going on. I hear you with anesthesia but if Sir Paul has bad breath, there are probably more teeth & gum issues.

    Yes, get him checked over by a vet. I know anaesthesia is always worrying but a dental is usually a quick job and so long as your vet knows how to deal with brachy breeds he should be fine. Bad teeth need to be dealt with.

    Yes, definitely a vet visit is in order. He'll probably need a weeks worth of antibiotic before a dental.

    I know it is scary for our pups to have anesthesia, but not taking care of infected teeth can cause serious health concerns. If you let us know when your vet schedules a dental for Sir Paul, we'll all be sending all our positive mojo your way!
