Puppy teeth

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.

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!!!
