Carnassial abscess or Dental fistula is a dental disease commonly associated with upper fourth premolar (Carnassial teeth) and first and second premolar teeth. This condition is commonly manifested with clinical signs of swelling and/or fistulous opening in the suborbital region The present study was conducted in five dogs which were presented to the college of veterinary Science, Hyderabad, Telangana. Dental radiographs of the suspected carnassial teeth were obtained to confirm the diagnosis. After confirmation, it was decided to extract the carnassial tooth by sectioning the tooth using a crosscut carbide fissure bur attached to a contra angle hand piece. All the dogs were advised oral medication with Amoxicillin-Clavulanate at the rate of 20mg/Kg twice a day for ten days and had an uneventful recovery.
