    Puppy broke his canines!
    d_caitlin posted:
    My 11.5 week old Akita puppy has some seperation anxiety so I've been working really hard with him and he now spends the night in his kennel without trying to escape or whining. Well, I came back yesterday after only an hour to blood on the floor around his kennel. I've found his top two canines are both broken-probably from chewing on the water bowl. I can see the red pulp. (Clearly we still need to work on the seperation anxiety). He's eating, playing, drinking, and chewing like normal. I'm pretty sure he's already started teething, so I know new teeth are on their way, but I don't know when! It could be another few months. I've heard a ton of conflicting information on when canines come in and whether or not to have the teeth pulled. My vet is of course closed. Has anyone had this happen and has advice? Thank you!
