    And you are getting another pat on the back from me. You are seriously my idol! I hope your good report inspires me to be better about this.
    Tucker had his dental cleaning from the vet in February, and Max is getting his on Monday while under anesthesia for his next CT scan (I get to take advantage of him already having to have anesthesia so I get this done at the same time).

    Rody had her dental yesterday, and they found that her tooth was not fractured, just chipped, and not majorly, so she didn't have to have it removed. She does have one other tooth with a small cavity, and they said next time it may need to be removed, but for now, just keeping an eye on it. She also had a few skin tags removed from her gums. She now has pearly whites. And they said she was the "perfect puppy" - couldn't have asked for a nicer dog to work with.

    I have a question if someone here doesn't mind answering. My ACD puppy Finn is 4 months old (20 weeks and 2 days to be exact) and yesterday we had a bit of an accident with him, where he had tried to stick his face out of the car window as it was being rolled up and he got his snout caught. In the process, his top left canine got knocked out. It was very traumatic and he was in a little bit of pain and shook up for a few minutes. My question is, given his age, would that have been a baby tooth? And should I have to worry about its adult replacement not growing in properly?

    Thank you in advance for the replies!

    That tooth was most likely a baby tooth (according to article below, adult canine teeth come in at about 6 months), so your pup may be just fine. However, did the tooth come all the way out, or is it broken, with a remnant or root still in the jaw? If that's the case, a vet visit is in order, as you don't want infection setting in.

    I will add my annual summer warning here also...if you have automatic windows, and a dog that likes to stick its head out the window, please make sure the windows are in the LOCKED position, so your dog cannot accidentally step on the button and strangle himself - it only takes a few seconds, and is a horrible thing to have happen.

    Thank you for the response! It was a baby tooth turns out. His other top canine fell out maybe 3 days after I posted just from playing and his adult canines are mostly in now
