Gently inspect your dog's mouth to identify the loose tooth. Look for any wobbling or unusual movements in the tooth. Avoid touching it to prevent discomfort.
If your dog feels uneasy, provide comfort and reassurance. Gentle strokes and soothing words can help your pet relax during this period.
Resist the urge to pull out the loose tooth yourself. Let the natural process take its course. Tugging may cause pain or lead to complications.
Switch your dog's diet temporarily to soft food and treats. Avoid hard chews that could worsen the loose tooth situation.
If you're concerned about your dog's loose tooth or notice any signs of infection, consult your veterinarian promptly.
Maintain good oral hygiene for your dog. Regularly brush their teeth with dog-friendly toothpaste and use dental treats or toys to promote dental health.
During this time, avoid playing with toys that put pressure on your dog's mouth, as it may exacerbate the issue.
