What Was Wrong?

This rottweiler came in drooling and pawing at her mouth. These symptoms can be caused by a number of things. Most people think it is a problem with a tooth. We tried to look in her mouth awake. She was very uncomfortable and wouldn’t let us get a close look. After she relaxed with sedation we got a good look and this is what we saw.

This stick was tightly wedged between her two large upper premolars. It came out easily. Lucky for her and her owner this was an uncomplicated problem and she should heal up great!
