My former boss actually came to my house and helped extract some retained canines on a couple of young dogs that I had. Of course this was a much simpler procedure than the one your dog needs.

Several years ago, I had a young dog that rolled and broke a k9 tooth. The vet pulled it, I don't think she ever missed it.
I also had a weimaraner that bit into an electrical cord, she had 3 teeth die. We had to have the vet pull they, he told us she would get along fine with out them. She act fine.
Good luck David Wolfe
My 9 year old Golden chipped one of her canine teeth when she was about 1 1/2 years old. We went to the University close by that specializes in animal care to have her looked at. She ended up going back 3 times in the process, once for a cleaning, once for a fitting and finally for the root canal and installation of the titanium tooth. It was a little pricey, but with her being young I figured it would be worth it. She has not had a problem with it since. Good luck and I hope your dog recovers quick with no problems.

If anyone is curious, you can find veterinary dentists listed by state here:
I feel better prepared, there is a doggie dentist not far from where I live!
Fingers crossed that today's surgery goes well.
Pulled remains of four incisors, some root canals, one implant and three pulp caps later.....
Around seven and a half hours total including the initial consultation and all the x-rays. He really took a long time to recover from being under. Today, he is back to normal. No birds or bumpers for a month though!
Thank you all for the phone calls, texts, email, pm's and replies.
