The title is obviously from Little Red Riding Hood, an ancient (if you ask me) fairy tale that isn't all it's cracked up to be. But, that's a story for a different blog than this one.
For us, the 'big teeth' mention is what's at work here. Dogs have pretty big canines. And, a whole bunch of other teeth, too. Even little dogs. Our little Olive lost most of her teeth, due to neglect from the puppy mill proprietors. We took her in for a doggie dental health check up when we first got her and the subsequent cleaning ended up removing a good many teeth. Poor girl.
She manages quite well, however. So, don't feel too too sorry for her.
Dog dental health and cat dental health was of prime interest to the vet practice I worked in, many, many years ago. I did my fair share of dentals. Can I say, "we've come a long way, baby!"? Yes. I can.
