Damages of Tooth and Foot (Mitzvah 55)

Regel (foot), refers to damage caused by an animal through normal walking. Shen (tooth) refers to damage caused by an animal deriving benefit. שן and רגל seem to be the least significant forms of damage (as opposed to goring, fire, etc.), why then does the owner automatically pay full and from the best?

The Rambam says that you don't simply have to compensate someone for damage caused by your property, you are committing a sin.
