Retained teeth

Hi. My 9 month old puppy still has her 2 canine puppy teeth. They are going to have to be removed. Just wondering has anyone had surgery for these retained teeth on their puppy? I am a little nervous about putting her under anesthesia but I have read that if these teeth stay in they will affect the growth of her adult teeth and also germs can accumulate between these two teeth.

My Zoe had 7 removed during her spay. She was able to eat much better afterwards as soon as she recovered from the anaesthesia.

Glad to hear that. How old was Zoe? My puppy was already spayed when I got her and her puppy teeth were still falling out so it was too soon to have surgery.

I think I waited until about 9 months. I would have delayed the spay longer but I was more concerned about the teeth. Good luck and don't worry. We had complete blood work prior to the surgery which I recommend.

Molly had two retained baby teeth removed. Unfortunately they affected some of her permanant teeth coming in properly and she had to have two more teeth removed later. Best not to leave them in too long so you don't have problems like we did. BTW - the extractions didn't seem to affect her much at all. I just made sure to moisten her kibble to soften it after she came home from the vet.

How old was Molly when she had her teeth removed? I hope I didn't wait too long.

It's not at all uncommon for small breed puppies to retain teeth. Neither of my older ones had a problem, but my youngest one has retained two canines. She is scheduled for them to be removed in about 2 weeks, assuming they don't fall out first. Fortunately, she does have room for them, and they havn't affected her bite.

Molly was about eleven months old when the baby teeth were removed finally. Looking back, I should have never listened to the vet and they should have come out sooner. About four months later the poor thing had to go back in to have two adult teeth pulled because they did not come in at the right angle and were becoming problematic.

Gracie had four baby teeth removed during her spay surgery. She recovered easily and had no problems afterwards. She was six and a half months when she had her surgery.

Tucker is having upper canines removed today and a few other while being neutered and micro chipped. He is almost 6 months old now.
