teething dog

6 posts in this topic

So my pup is 5 1/s months old now. Almost all of his adult teeth are in now. However one of his lower k9's came in and the baby tooth hasn't appeared to fall out yet. The new tooth looks healthy white and in good position but it pushed the older tooth off to the side but not out completely.

Will this tooth just likely fall out on its own soon or should it have come out already? I'm hoping no doggy dentist visits are needed as thats not in the budget right now.

Any insight?

Is it still in there pretty solid? I yanked a few out of my dog, but they were pretty loose. Just got sick of it wobbling in there and bleeding on everything.

That happened with our dog. He had two or three baby teeth getting pushed off to the side. I called our vet and he said if they were still there in a week, give him a call. They came out on their own a few days later.

It seems pretty solid but I haven't tested it in a few days. I noticed this weekend and its still in there today. I'll probably give it a little more time to see if it will work its way out. It doesn't seem to be painful in anyway.

Maybe something tough to gnaw on will be enough to work them out? Maybe try a big Greenie or rawhide or something along those lines.

He's currently working on a shin bone, he was chewing on a 1x2 pine board earlier and he was also gnawing on a rock this morning. I'm thinking he's trying to work it out for himself.

    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
    • What do you have against Japanese Beetles?   Diversity is good.   We need all nationalities of beetles.  Even VW beetles.   Asian Lady Beetles, everything.  All nationality and gender identity beetles. 
    • Tysons chicken tender, Top sirloin steak, pork chop, burgers seasoned to taste - crispy crowns, tutor tots, fries - beer batter shore lunch Walleye, Crappie all better than deep fryer, oven or gas grill. Just do potato first & keep hot in oven at 250. Even Spam is better than pan fryed but if your under 40 you may not have a clue about Spam.
    • Yes spray it, or wipe it down with an oiled paper towel before you use it.  I use a little ball of aluminum foil to scrub them after the cook, but while they are still warm. They make disposable grill topper grates that are handy too when you are cooking something that is going to be really messy.
