Introduction: The scientific and the technological advancements made in the dentistry in the last decade its being used in the veterinary medicine for therapeutical aspect in order to improve dental health of animals. Aim: In this case report we present our dental therapeutic intervention on a dog, which is an only specimen of its race in our country i.e. the Japaneese race Akita Inu or a Samurai dog. Study design: After the examination of the dog’s oral cavity we have found a fracture of the corona of the maxillary canine i.e. tooth 24 (dogs have 3 pairs of incisives in the maxilla). There was also a visible damage of the gums, fistulous formation and hiperemia. We realised endodontic treatment on the damaged tooth and it was succesfully for a period of three months. After that period there was a remision of the symptoms. The operative therapy that followed confirmed a presence of a vertical fracture at tooth 24 after which the tooth was extracted. Conclusion: Eighteen months later, the four-legged patient is in great shape and with perfect oral health, even though it’s missing one of its canines.
