14 teeth! We had previously brought our concern to our last vet in BC, years ago. But they said his teeth looked fine, to try brushing his teeth more often - which he would not let me do. So we made sure he always had good quality bones to gnaw on. Fast forward 4 years. I took knuckles to the vet yesterday for a tooth extraction. When I picked him up they said all those teeth were rotten, which is why his breath was so bad. I'm so mad, I feel like I let my dog down.
