Pulling Teeth, Help

In a past thread, that I cannot find, someone mentioned pulling teeth. Are you talking front, jaw or what? How do you know you need to do this? Is the dog put to sleep for this? I noticed something that looked strange in Smartyís molars today and was wondering if left alone will the baby teeth fall out or be pushed out by the permanent teeth. Never thought about this with other dogs.

they are usually pushed out by the adult teeth. All Dora's teeth came in fine. My little maltese had to have hers removed when she was spayed because they weren't pushed out and my vet thought it could cause trouble down the road.

Banzei:s teeth in front fell out by themselves, he had some problems with the teeth in the back. We had to go to the vet where they pulled them out while he was asleep. We did this when he was 8 month old. The first teeth fell out when he was 5 or 6 month old.

For a while we had remnants of molars that Oreo retained, but then I decided to get him beef tendons and flossies to see if that chewing action would dislodge the molar pieces. I am happy to say that it helped and now the only ones he is really retaining is his upper canines. They won't budge, no matter what He is eating normally and they don't seem to bother him, but I think I better shop around for prices, as the $350 my vet is asking for seems a little too ridiculous for me. Sandi, good luck with it, and keep us posted as to how things work out for you

Sandi,

Bugsy's baby teeth came out on their own, but I do remember that my vet checked to see how his teeth were before he was neutered. I would ask your vet, he'll know if her teeth will need help coming out.
