Sadie and her lap top

In the last couple of days, my cat Sadie's lower fang either broke off or fell out. She seems a little down, ornery, but is still eating her dry food without a problem so it doesn't seem like she is in pain. She fights me when I pry her mouth open to look at it- it either broke far down or came completely out- it looks like a little red hole? I can't afford a vet- do the Petsmarts have anything for a tooth issue?

Answer by Kate
i don't think there is anything you can get for this from the shops.

the worry is that an infection will set in and this needs to be treated with antibiotics from the vet.

Hopefully the area is just a little sore and will heal itself in a day or two. but if not then I'm sorry to say that she will need to see a vet.

She is a beautiful cat, love her colouring.

I hope all is well again soon
