I'm not sure if this is the right one but anyway. I was looking at Misty's teeth yesterday and I noticed one of his top ones looks half the length og the other. Could he have broken it on anything? I'm not really sure what to do

They do break their teeth sometimes - chewing at the bars of the cage is the main culprit in this house.

It should grow back in really quickly - just keep an eye on it to make sure it is growing evenly.

Scarby has broken both his top teeth! The vet said they are healthy and there is no decay, and Scarby is eating really well!

Vet could file down the other for you - no anaesthetic needed.

Scarby's top teeth are growing back nicely. Now he's broken off a bottom one!
