• My dachshund/chihuahua mix is 10 mos old and he has two baby fangs behind his adult ones and was chewing on a hard toy and on of them broke off in worried because he had some flesh sticking out and it doesnt look natural what should I do

    Hi Marisa,

    I recommend that you take him into see a veterinarian. Breaking the tooth like you described can be painful and if the root is still present it can potentially lead to issues with his permanent tooth. Your vet can let you know what treatment is needed after they have examined your pet.
