We found the tip of our pup's tooth on the floor. It's about 1/3 of his lower corner tooth (the big one). I assume he did it the last time he was crated while we were out which was last Weds. He chews non-stop on the crate when we are out (causing him to puke which lands inside and outside the crate, not fun to clean up, ew). I guess that's how/when he did it.

Do you think he is in pain? Will he need the broken tooth to be treated? I will bring him to the vet this week to have his neutering incision checked, so I will surely ask. He seems just fine now, but he's on pain meds from the surgery.

You say pup...how old is he, and is it an baby tooth or an adult tooth? Actually, either way, not much you can do about it....but obviously, it would be better if it were one of his baby teeth.

I don't know anything about dog teeth. We got him 3 weeks ago and we can only guess that he's around 4 months now. Not sure when they loose their baby teeth and what not.

It is probably still a baby tooth...which in this case is good! You may start finding baby teeth around the house(Or some never find them...lost to the vacuum or whatever)....he is teething just like an infant would. Make sure he has plenty to chew on ie Nylabones, etc....You'll see his gums are probably a bit swollen and red.
