Dog not eating

Trying to decide how concerned to be. We have an approximate 7-8 year old Boxer/Boston Terrier mix. She has been on the same food for a long time and has had a healthy appetite up until Wednesday.

On Thursday we discovered she had cracked a tooth and took her to the vet where that tooth was removed. The vet said we should be able to feed as normal starting the next day.

However the dog has not eaten anything since we brought her back home Thursday evening. Is this typical after having a tooth pulled or should we be concerned?

I don't have any experience with this, but I can imagine that maybe she's still in some pain. Try feeding her some wet or soft food, something she'll really love. It's ok for dogs to go a couple of days without eating. But if she starts acting lethargic then I'd be concerned.
