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.
