I've got a 3 year old bitch that broke off one of her canines. We've got two options - an extraction or a root canal procedure on the nubbin of a tooth that's left. Since the extraction would cost a third of what the root canal would, I'm wondering if having the tooth extracted would cause a show judge to disqualify her? Or if I'd have to have a vet statement or something showing that she had the tooth extracted because of injury and not something genetic.
Any thoughts out there?
