one of his top teeth have broken off a little and the bugger keeps grinding his teeth to smooth it off! It goes right through you! LOL

It's not a bad break, only a teensy bit, but enough to bother him.. not enough to put him off his food either!

Got some wooden blocks here for him to have a gnaw on and see if that will make it smoother for him.. I'll give it till the weekend and if it hadn't worn down by then will be taking him to the vets.

Anyone ever filed their own piggies teeth?

Bless him!

This happened to Munchkin when he was with his previous owner and she took him to the vets.

I think the vet must have sorted his tooth out but he still has problems eating sometimes

If its just a bit rough you can use a diamond nail file to smooth it. If not its a vet job really.

Teeth are a nightmare!
