• My puppy was eating a bone and one of his teeth are loose and bleeding. Is this normal?

    Hi Samnaya,
    I recommend that you take him into see a veterinarian. If the tooth affected is a baby tooth, it being loose can be normal. However, if the bone broke the tooth then this is not normal and is especially concerning if it was a permanent tooth. Your vet  can talk to you more about the affected tooth and any treatment that he needs after they have examined him.
