I don't have a lot of experience with problem teeth as none of my dogs have had problems. With that, it looks to me that the gum is swollen at the extraction point. That could mean a problem.

What is the vet recommending you do? Do they want to go in and explore?

The wait may be due to the viral infection. They may not want to sedate him until it's under control. Or they are trying to reduce the number of vet visits you need to make. The virus will need about 10 days to clear, so they need to wait that long to do the recheck. Rather than have you come in once for the toot and again for the infection, they are just doing one appointment at 10 days.

I would just keep an eye on it. If the gum changes color, his eating habits suddenly change, get him in right away. Otherwise wait the 10 days and see what they say.

Yeah!!!! Glad it ended up being an easy solution with no surgery, etc.
