• Has anyone's puppy still got baby teeth at 24 weeks old?

    Poppy still has one baby canine wedged firmly in behind the adult one.

    How long should I leave this?

  • Hi.
    Mody is over 5 month now and she has the same, it is normal, main fact is, that she has the adult one, the baby canin teeth will leave for sure…It is very individual -the time of loosing baby teeth, really don?t worry about this, when she is just 6 months old. And does she have all adult teeth except this one double?


  • Hi Petra,

    Thanks for the reply and reassurance. She has does have all her adult teeth and she lost the other double about a week ago.

    Steve.


  • Hi Steve

    I wouldn't worry about it yet, just keep an eye on the adult tooth and check it's coming through in the right position. Keiko still had hers at 5 1/2 months, they were rigid one day and gone the next.


  • I am not sure how many baby teeth Jaycee has left but I do know we have found several of her teeth. Kind of funny hear crunch and she would drop a tooth.

    But you know me I always worry! It will be something else next week!

  • I've just had a look and noticed that Dora (Rocco's sister) has the same thing going on and she's 5 months now. All Rocco's adult teeth are through though.


  • Thanks everyone.

    It seems quite common so I am reassured. I will just have to worry about something else!

  • The final tooth is out at 28 weeks old! The day before it seemed to be wedged firmly in place and I was contemplating an expensive trip to the Vets!

    She managed to dislodge it after a destructive frenzy of items she stolen from a cupboard while we were out on a short shopping trip. The Items included a roll of kitchen paper, a very large bag of pasta and plastic bags. I think she was protesting about being left on her own for the first time in what we thought was a safe place.

    I have posted a picture of the destruction on Noodle’s - You'd think I'd have learned my lesson too!

    Wow, I am glad she took caer of her tooth by herself…but I saw the mess, wow. It probably ended up cheaper then a vet visit though. Otis lost all his teeth by 5 months, the last to go was his canines, but I thing the reason his were lost fairly early is because he is on BARF diet, meaning lots of bones and chewy meat to tear through..maybe.


  • O yes, it was certainly cheaper than the Vet!!!
