• I just notice that my dog's lower left canine tooth is pink. What does this mean?

    A pink tooth can be a sign of a diseased or unhealthy tooth. This can be caused by root infection, injury, or even death of the tooth.

    I recommend that you have your dog examined by your veterinarian. They can examine the tooth and give you a better idea of what may be causing the discoloration. Any treatment that your pet needs will depend on the underlying cause of the discoloration. Good luck!
