I've removed teeth from fresh carcasses pretty sucsessfully by
using a grinding bit on a dremmel tool. I cut thru the bone around
the tooth enough to make it thin and flexible, then work the tooth
out with a pliars. I made this safer by super gluing heavy felt to
the pliar's jaws.
The downside of this is that you have to cut thru the gums (I cut
of the lips as well) which would leave your friend's pet in a messy
state. If they have no objection to that, it should work well.

> I have a couple friends who are losing pets soon due to illness.
One is a large Rottweiler, the other a small cat. I have saved claws
from pets for friends in the past, but was wondering how to salvage
some teeth? Pliers have resulted in some messy situations in the
past..is there an easy way to remove teeth from freshly dead animals
with minimal damage to the teeth? I was thinking of saving the cats
tail as well...Anyone else do this type of work for friends?
