I'm trying to take a pic but Danzig won't let me. I at least got another look and from what I've compared with the internet, it looks like the gray area I'm seeing is the pulp. The tooth is about a fourth of the size it should be. I'm afraid our vet may be a little too pricy and have a feeling I'll need to shop around.

Well there goes my bonus money.... Oh well, the dog means more to me the money lol.

FINALLY! I got at least one pic. It's the top right front tooth.

I'll have to have Dustin help get a pic of the back side, where it's gray

This is the best we could do with the back. You can see where it's dark colored.

What you may be seeing in the tooth is the root and not a cavity. I would advise going to the vet sooner then later. It the root is exposed it may be causing pain, and it may not be. My lab broke 2 of her baby canines, yes two, when she decided to chew on a concrete porch lol. I thought I saw a cavity and it turned out to be the root of the tooth. However, they were so close to coming out that one literally popped out in the vet office with no problem. The other was not bothering her so we let it come out on its own.

It is rather unusual for a dog to get a cavity, yes it is possible. Good luck.

Yup, from the pictures I've found on the on the internet, it looks like exposed pulp. He is going to the vey in an hour. I'll keep you posted.

I hope I'll be lucky enough to have it pop out on it's own! Sounds cheaper.

Ok got back from the vet. Danzig managed to pee twice in the office and once when I had to lift his prissy butt into my car.

So they didn't get to good a look it, but because it's a front tooth they feel it's best to remove it. He is scheduled for Friday and they pull it, clean and do blood work and anesthesia for $443-$520. She said usually when one tooth is factured, others might be as well, so they will call if anything else comes up. I'm dreading him being under anesthesia. When he got neutered, he was such a big baby about it.

One a complete side bar, he is NOT overweight and I'm so glad he isn't.

I *think* it's because Sierra's broken tooth is a canine instead of a front tooth. The root on a canine is long and goes all the way up the jaw, so it's a little more involved in removing a canine.

This is correct. She said the incisors are a lot better to deal with and easier to take out.

I'm trying to see if I can drop him off on Friday as early as 6:30am. I can't be late to work and neither can Dustin, when I thought he could. If I can't, I'll have to move it to Tuesday.

So Danzig had his surgery yesterday. She said the front tooth did have an infected root, so was glad we were taking it out. He also had a fractured back tooth and I gave her the go ahead to bond it, because it was salvageable. We picked him up last night and all you could hear in the office was him howling and our total price was only $506. He seemed pretty out of it last night, so we set him up in his kennel and went to dinner. Came back and he wasn't whining anymore, but still a little loopy. We had him sleep in our room and he didn't make it a peep. He's pretty much back to normal today and when he barked for the first time, the gap in his teeth made a whistling noise.
