Lets see some panting droolers!!

May 11th, 2004, 01:25 AM
Gracie does this thing... not drooling, of course, but sometimes, after grooming herself, it's almost like she forgets to put her tongue back in her mouth... it's hilarious. I call it "the retard kitty".

May 12th, 2004, 08:23 AM
Aggie you should consider taking Honey to the vet about her teeth.
I never noticed before but she is missing a tooth and her others seem worn down. The canine is very very thin...oddly thin. She's barely 2yrs old and they shouldn't look like that (has me concerned)
Ya think maybe she is wearing her teeth down on something (can dogs grind their teeth at night LOL)
But seriously, this may be a problem now or later in life. You should let the vet check her out.
Is she stressed over anything, and chewing on your furniture ??
If you want send me a couple of dif pics and I'll give u my opinion but from this pic, I'd say something isn't right.
May 12th, 2004, 08:45 AM
Yea honey is chewing on something...poor Chocolate!!! lol!
All the pictures are so sweet. I have to wait till it warms up before I get a tongue shot :( Mine don't really pant????
May 12th, 2004, 09:15 AM
Pussy's are welcome.....Oh man do I ever want to say something to that...BUT I am a good girl and I won't..... :D
I noticed that too Luba.
wAggie,did Honey break that tooth?Is the other part down in the gum?
I aslo would suggest taking her to get the vet to take a look..She could end up with an absest...Hmmmm did I spell that right?..LOL
May 12th, 2004, 09:17 AM
I agree about Honeys teeth,seems there's one missing :confused: What happened too it,did they play too rough?Or maybe she had a coffee-table for lunch? Oh boy,dentist for poor Honey...I sympathise,as does Chico,after his last teeth cleaning :p
May 12th, 2004, 10:15 AM
I never saw a young dog with molars missing like that....what's happened to our Honey? :confused:
May 12th, 2004, 11:13 AM
THis is Oscar licking his nose
May 12th, 2004, 05:25 PM
oh my goodness!!
i think the angle of the pic is really odd... either that or i have NO idea what ur talking about.
broken tooth? i think not!!
what part's down to the gums??! she's got smaller teeth than Chocolate, after all, she's smaller!
she chews on Chocolate, ALL THE TIME. (but we all know this!!)
lol, she's still hyper, for the most part, she does not chew on furniture, i caught her twice going for the couch, but that's it... she doesn't eat rocks... like Chocolate did back in the day... :rolleyes:
lol, lemme find a pic w a better view... or i'm gonna go and take a new one asap!
thanx for the concerns tho... i think? :)
oh ya, and here's my attempt last night at buh-bah's tongue :confused:
ps, here's the Ho panting just MOMENTS ago :D
May 12th, 2004, 05:27 PM
aren't they precious??! :D
May 12th, 2004, 05:32 PM
Luba, the picture posted was taken at her first visit here (november 20, 2004)!!
plz post me a pic that u have where it shows she actually had a tooth there!!?
otherwise it's quite possible that IF she had a tooth there, it was already missing when i met her!
May 12th, 2004, 06:10 PM
here's Brick's dainty lil' tongue!!! NOT!!!!!! LMAO
May 12th, 2004, 06:13 PM
And one more!! He really does have a HUGE tongue to go along with his huge nose and head!!! LOL
May 12th, 2004, 06:42 PM
If Honey has a tooth under the gum which has broken off or not erupted it could cause her troubles.
I suggest you open her mouth and look at the teeth, count them all on the left and right sides top and bottom. Look to see if they are wearing unevenly.
If you aren't sure how they should look then check Chocolates, they should look the same and be in the same places.
I will look through all of the pictures if you like. I don't know if I have one to show that specific tooth but I'll look. She was thoroughly examined by my vet, which did include a dental examination because when we got her she was a stray. My vet used her dental information to determine her age. They do this by looking for wear to the teeth and any build up of tartar.
Dr. Rae would have mentioned something to me if there was a problem with her teeth that she seen then. Perhaps this is something that is occurring as she grows or perhaps a injury that happened that you weren't aware of. It could even be something like she is using only one side to bite on, I dunno!!
But don't u think it's worth finding out what may be wrong if anything?
May 12th, 2004, 06:43 PM
Catt Brick loves the water huh!! He looks like he could play there all day :D
May 12th, 2004, 07:58 PM
Okay well I looked through all the pictures that I can find and I'm sorry Aggie I don't have one of the inside of her mouth like that!
I was thinking maybe her bite is just off, sometimes if upper teeth are larger then they should be they wear on the lower ones.
With Sadie I just found out because of her undershot jaw she needs to have dental surgery.
Her canines (the adult ones are just coming in to full growth) are going to be digging in her upper palette (did I spell that right).
Anyway she needs a dental consultation with a specialist because they will need to grind down her canines so that they are not protruding into her palette then surgically fill the holes that are there from whats happening now.
Only thing is they need to wait until they fully grow to determine how much of the canines need to be reshaped.
Poor baby :( My little undershot jaw baby. The bump we've been watching behind her upper teeth isn't anything to worry about. The other day at the vet Dr. Rae said it's just her oddly shaped mouth. LOL We thought it may have been a tooth but it's not (thank goodness).
Okay enough rambling, sorry I can't find a pic of Honey to help you compare with. Wish I had one but it was winter and she wasn't panting ya know!
Let me know if you want the name of the dentist that I am going to take Sadie to later on. But you should just see your vet first, they may say its nothing.
May 13th, 2004, 09:35 AM
Ohhh yeah, he would play in the river all day if we let him!!! This summer when I'm off, I think I'll bring my lawn chair and my book and just throw the ball all day for him!!! LOL He'll be in heaven!!! What a dog!!! :D
OMG Sadie has a huge mouth...LMAO!!!!!!!
May 13th, 2004, 01:41 PM
Luba, that picture was taken 6 months ago when she came over for her first evening visit. the picture, along w others that were taken after that day, all show that she wasnt bleeding nor was there a hole in her mouth from a missing tooth. it shows smooth skin. so IF she lost a tooth, it was waaaaay before i had any contact with her.
besides that, she chews her food on both sides of her mouth. she does not prefer one over the other.
i'm disappointed the way these posts have been heading. i do not neglect Honey.
it has been AT LEAST six months before that this has happened, I see absolutely on reason why this should be a concern now simply because u now notice she's got a gap in her mouth.
i have examined her mouth, true i'm not a veterinarian, but i do brush her teeth. she has never displayed any sensitivity nor abnormality to my touch, including the mouth.
there is NOTHING to worry about when it comes to this dog, Luba.
but I have a question... u said dr rae examined her teeth to determine how old she was... but she didnt notice the gap? or there WAS no gap between her teeth then?
was it possible that she lost her tooth during her stay with you? OR dr rae did NOT notice the gap... and it's "normal" that Honey may have a gap there (ie, her tooth didnt grow there)... OR Honey DID loose a tooth but long before she came into both of our lives?
May 13th, 2004, 03:44 PM
Aggie the only thing I can say is I don't know I don't have the answers to the questions you asked.
May 13th, 2004, 04:04 PM
well... here's a pic taken seconds ago...
it looks like she's NEVER had grown a tooth there, her gums are too low for anything to have ever been there. but that's just my opinion, in any case i think it's impossible to think that she may have an absess from an injury that chipped her tooth.
May 13th, 2004, 04:56 PM
Sometimes if an adult tooth is under the skin and just hasn't erupted there is a dental procedure they can do....but I don't know the name of it you would have to ask your vet.
Would be a good idea to have the vet address the situation as it may cause her problems as she gets older.
This is what I have to do with Sadie.
May 13th, 2004, 06:08 PM
Sorry I just thought of this,
perhaps Honey still had some immature teeth (puppy teeth) that have since fallen out and the adult teeth haven't come through. Stranger things have happened?
May 13th, 2004, 06:29 PM
Stef I would love to see a pic of that!!
Whats' Chico licking?? lol
I haven't yete been able to get a picture of the "retard kitty"... she always seems to put the tongue back in her mouth just seconds before I can grab the camera...
May 13th, 2004, 11:44 PM
Luba, it looks like a good thing that I took more pix of Honey earlier today...
here's a better angle... I hope u can see that there's absolutely no way ANY type of tooth can be hiding under those gums. she's barely got any gums in that area, that's probably why she never grew a tooth here. it's what I believe, anyhow.
she's a very, very happy and healthy dog.
I know I am no vet, but neither are you - no offence. Sadie's situation is VERY different from Honey's, we all know Sadie's get a significant overbite.
End of story.
***Good Luck w Sadie's situation***
May 13th, 2004, 11:46 PM
compared to her other side, it's impossible a decent tooth could have grown there. :eek:
so, please, Luba, RELAX. :)
May 14th, 2004, 10:46 AM
There may be nothing that you can do, this could just be how she is and will remain. As you said, since we are not vets you and I, don't you think it's better for a vet to make that call?
I did a little looking around, I hope this helps you make up your mind:
A-adontia-absence of a tooth or multiple teeth-also called hypodontia or oligodontia
*image from website below*
And as I pointed out before, after she lost her puppy tooth the other one 'may' be under the surface and 'can' be exposed if it's there :D which is a 'good' thing for her:
Missing teeth (hypodontia) usually occurs in the premolar area, but any tooth in the mouth may not erupt. Missing or extra teeth are considered genetic faults. Collies and Doberman Pinchers are most commonly affected. Sometimes the missing tooth is trapped below the gum line. A dental x-ray can be taken to determine if an unerupted tooth is present.
May 14th, 2004, 12:56 PM
Luba, I checked out that site... WOW!
Orthodontic care for dogs... that's going too far (in most cases, anyhow)!!!
I'll quote some valid facts that I feel u've missed...
"Dogs and cats may be born without the proper number of teeth."
"Missing or extra teeth are considered genetic faults."
"Dental x-rays can be taken as early as ten weeks of age to evaluate if the correct number of teeth are present. X-rays are recommended as a part of the prepurchase examination in certain breeds."
searching thru the net, i've found this condition is also linked to the chow chow, beagle, terriers, but not pointers...
this generally does occur in smaller breeds anyhow.
Honey's almost a 1.5 yrs old (we approximate). it's clear to see a regular tooth would not fit in that gap. therefore, I will make the judgment call of my dog with the conclusion that she never grew an adult molar. Honey does not have an absess nor is she susceptible to one.
Luba, "Anodontia (congenital absence of teeth) and oligodontia (only a few teeth present) are rare conditions, often associated with generalised disorders. Hypodontia (one or a few teeth missing) is a common condition."
hypodontia is a relatively common congenital condition characterized by absence of one or more teeth because of absence of their anlage, which is seldom associated with other anomalies.
a study, I found, showed that 93 (32.3%) out of 627 dogs had hypodontia of the first and second lower and upper premolars, and third lower molars involved.
If your vet didnt recommand an x-ray examination of this pointer when you had her, and neither did my vet afterwards. I firmly stand by the belief that there is no tooth hidden/buried under the surface.
this is a congenital defect, likely caused from a recessive gene which she inherited from her parents. big whoop.
May 14th, 2004, 01:06 PM
Please mention this to your vet when Honey goes for her annual physical the next time. This way you will have a professional opinion.
May 14th, 2004, 01:18 PM
Luba, I'm disappointed you feel that you need to recommand/remind me about the annual physical!!!!!
Why do you have so little faith in me??!
May 15th, 2004, 09:18 AM
If you knew you were going to discuss it during Honey's annual exam, all ya had to do was say so (several posts ago). I would have been satisfied.
You may feel disappointed, but I felt the same way....when you made absolutely no mention of even being concerned/wanting to discuss it with your vet.
I truly am very happy you are going to talk it over with the vet, only wish you had saved us both the grief of these last few posts by telling me sooner.
Lets move forward now, shall we?
May 16th, 2004, 04:14 PM
Luba, I am NOT concerned with a missing tooth.
You could have finished off your issue on the phone or msn, without dragging it into the message board, anyhow.
I have no idea what you feel you have accomplished by all of this.
May 16th, 2004, 05:19 PM
There is little one can accomplish if reason is avoided.
I msn'd you again and as it bothers you to discuss this here, I respectfully will not continue this thread any longer.
May 21st, 2004, 08:13 PM
Ok, I finally got the tongue pictures I wanted!!! The one is a bit fuzzy but it should be ok!!! If you look closely, you can see Brick's freckle on the back of his tongue!!!
