FIND OUT WHY
I would be very grateful for your advice regarding this case, which involves a 10-month-old Cockerpoo bitch called Nelly.
As you can see from the photographs, Nelly is undershot. I am concerned with the upper incisors coming into contact with the lingual aspects of the mandibular incisiors. In addition, the incisor teeth, 103 and 203 are coming into contact with the respective mandibular canine teeth.
She is not keen on you examining her mouth, which may be due to lack of training, and her prehension of food is not affected.
What dental treatment, if any, would you recommend?
The owner is undecided as to whether to breed from the dog, but I have warned her against it.
As ever, thank you for your help,
