I was given no advice about how to deal with this.
Aside from keeping an eye on the growth of the lower tooth, I'm concerned about her eating. I have her on my chest right now with a strawberry and she's barely touched it. How do I make sure she's getting enough food until she can eat normally again? Pictures below with tooth and still-intact strawberry.
Read over www.guinealynx.info/teeth_broken.html for help handling this and to tell you what to expect and how long it will take the tooth to grow out.
You might want to start weighing her daily right now as a double check that she is eating enough. I changed the title of this thread so it can be Pippa's medical thread.
I went in to the vet to buy critical care (meal replacement formula) and the vet who did the surgery was there and she was surprised it's affecting Pippa's eating at all. I'm not 100% sure about her advice in general though - we have a history.
The timeline on that page actually looks about perfect for her rebooked surgery, so hopefully I only need to get her top tooth trimmed a couple of times.
And thanks for the pics. I'll go add cropped versions (load quicker).
p.s. If you'd like to add weekly pictures to show how the tooth is growing out, that would be great!
And yeah I'm hoping her teeth won't need trimming, but I'm not sure how far below the gum the first tooth is broken. I think it's starting to be visible, so hopefully her teeth will meet before the lower ones start causing problems.
Her teeth are growing back really fast... photo when I can get it off my phone.
