So I fed Gigi a carrot today and she kept on trying to gnaw it, so I opened her mouth and she is missing a tooth! I have no idea how this happened... but I have dropped her before (she's lost her teeth 2 times before when we first got her) and they have always grown back. I should have noticed this before when i fed her a timonthy fuzz and she couldn't eat it, but she can eat pellets. Should I blend the veggies or chop it finely?
 
the same thing happened with my piggie lola, it grew back within a week just make sure the bottom one isnt growing to far up, when the top one grows it will grind it back down but if it gets long enough to touch her upper gum them she will need to go to the vets to have it trimmed, they will do it whilst shes awake, it wont hurt her
