  • Hey #flexfam! I want to share something with you. I may have been my smiling, happy normal self this weekend, slinging back some brews, but the day before this photo was taken my mom discovered I had fractured one of my back molars (swipe for that photo). I hadn’t been acting uncomfortable or in pain, so my parents were really surprised to find this. Well, my lovely vet @drbrizygray immediately told them the tooth would need to be extracted. When they put me under and started working on my teeth, they discovered another back molar had also fractured but the fracture was covered up by some plaque buildup. The vet said that this was likely caused by chewing on hard bones. My favorite thing to do is chew on deer antlers or Nyla bones — we had no idea these could cause such destruction in my mouth! So unfortunately, no more bones for me. My two molars are now removed and I’m recovering well. But we wanted to share this #PSA with all our fellow pup parents so no one else has to suffer through this same thing. It’s best to monitor our time with bones and frequently check our teeth to make sure our pearly whites are happy & healthy! Okay, flex out ✌🏻 • ••• • #flex #flexthecorgi #corgi #corgis #corgisofinstagram #corgigram #corgiplanet #corgination #corgiig #igcorgi #dog #dogs #instadogs #dogsofinstagram #barkbox #chewy #doghealth #doghealthtips #dogteethcleaning #dogparents • ••• • @corgiplanet @corgistagrams @corgi_nation @corgigram_ @corgi_ig_daily @helloshibe @bandedpines @nativeinstinctco @copper.paws @hundclothingco @corgi_ig @corgisftw @corgithings @wethedogsdc @corgifeed @chewy

Oh no 🥺, poor Flex! Glad you’re recovering well! My dog used to chew on bones as well but now we give her softer dental sticks ✌🏼

Thanks for passing on this important information so other pawrents can make good decisions about what their dog should chew. 👍👍👍

Thank you for using your platform to educate people on the hazards of those bones! The exact same thing happened to my corgi.

oh my gosh!! poop bubba! We just got a teeth cleaning from @pearlywhitepets. They noticed some wearing on Navy's teeth too ... we are definitely going to be more careful around bones for Navy too :(

weilicorgi - Wei Li 4 months ago

aww!! Recover well my friend and thanks for the tip. Mom is checking me out 🦷

pearlywhitepets - Pearly White Pets 4 months ago

We see too many dogs come into our office with bad fractures due to antlers, hooves, etc. We refer them to their vet to get taken care of bc majority of the time extraction is the only way to solve the problem. Hope Flex is recovering well!

Mango didn’t break a tooth, but he wore his canines flat when he was younger. I used to give him bones pretty frequently but now he gets them sparingly. People ask me about his blunt teeth every now and then. 😬
