ok so about a year ago I lived in a shitty neighborhood and my house got broken into twice. Lost a lot of belongings so I decided to get the cheapest means of security, a very huge dog. My friend hooked me up with a 1 yr old 130lbs/58kg female saint Bernard. I didn't care that it wasn't an aggressive breed, I just wanted her to bark and with that size she would strike enough fear. Well it worked, the 3rd time they tried to break into my house, they weren't able to steal anything. But it's gotten progressively worse. It's gotten to the point where she will attack any stranger on sight and has gotten in several fights with pit bulls. It's a very hard dog to control, so I need advice on aggression control asap!

So I'm a grade A dickhole.... I haven't noticed that for a few days my cat's uoper right fang has been bothering him.
The tooth always sticks down a bit when he's in a playful mood, but I didn't notice anything was wrong until I was teasing/playing with him and he took a nip at me only to reel back and hiss.
He'd done the reel back thing twice earlier this week, and I feel like a double ass because he's only had dry food for the past 3 days when he usually gets wet at night.
He's still been eating fine though and though it appears to have dropped down some and is quite wiggly, its still up in the gums....
Vet isn't open until Monday, and I have a class from 11-12:30 but I'm hoping to get him in.
I do have about $3000 from my grant money but its supposed to go towards rent/etc, but I'm not sure if I should just let the tooth fall out first and then take him in for a cleaning/to look for infection or if I should have them extract it?
Looking on the internet it seems like as long as its just irritating and not causing crazy pain, it might be okay to let it fall out on its own first.
I don't know.... what do you guys recommend? My dude is going to be 15 in July by the way... adopted him January 2001 when he was 6 months old. I know that's old for a lot of peoples cats but I'm used to my family having cats age 20+ so he just seems a bit middle aged to me.
Pic is not my cat.

I've got these bugs I found infesting some dried goods awhile back, and after some research I thought they may be mealworms so I kept them for later use. Problem is that any sources I can find on them put them at around 2.5cm full grown, where the ones I've got maybe get to 3mm at most. I thought maybe this was due to their environment and that they'd get bigger, but they have remained the same for quite awhile now and just yesterday I happened to find one about 2.5cm long in my compost. Are there two different kinds, am I doing something wrong, or are they different bugs entirely? Nothing I can find references the smaller ones at all.
I just want to know whether they're safe to eat and if I'm caring for them correctly. I've followed the guides pretty closely and they seem to be thriving, but if they're not actually mealworms I'm afraid they may need different things.
