Cat Lost a Tooth--Should I Worry?--Updated with more questions.
The cat was yawning at me and appears to have lost one of the top long, pointy teeth (canine?). There's no bleeding, no apparent swelling and he's eating and drinking normally. Should I be worried about this? He's five years old and has had his teeth cleaned by the vet due to bad breath in the past, but is in good general health.
Vets here generally don't speak a lot of English, so if the consensus is wait and see, I'll just keep an eye on it, but I've never had one lose one of those big teeth before! Is it possible that part of the tooth is still in the gum somewhere?
