After a relatively calm period in the purple pig household, one of the girls had snapped off a top front tooth right at the gun line. She seems fine, no weight loss, eating normally, poo ok etc. I’m not sure what, if anything, I need to do. My plan is to watch her carefully until it regrows and if it looks wonky or she starts chewing strangely take her to the vet. Would anyone do anything differently?
Ours have broken teeth, sometimes one/both/top or bottom. None of them showed any signs of distress and it didn't stop them eating if we took steps like grating veg and letting the dental challenged hog have time alone to eat, at least for the first few meals. They grew back really quickly too , then the longer one just wears down with their intensive eating I know you went through problems with MrPig but that was back teeth IIRC?
Thanks 70. Appreciate that.You’re right, lovely ex-mrpig had a back tooth that kept getting a spur on it. I haven’t got any experience with front teeth. I only noticed it was broken during the weekly check over and weigh in (still enormous, mainly due to bum). I’m sure the tooth will be back to normal soon and I’ll just keep an eye in the meantime.
