Retained puppy teeth

Poor Charly girl needs to have three canine puppy teeth pulled next Friday. The roots never reabsorbed and her adult canines are in. We give her rawhide sticks every morning but that didnt help loosen them at all. I was wondering if this is common in the Havanese breed? What to expect as far as healing goes. How long will she be in pain? I know our vet will explain after the procedure but I would like to know if anyone has advise for us here on the forum. BTW I'm going to ask to have her inner ear hair removed while shes under. She hates having it done and has had an ear infection in the past.

Dexter had to have a few baby teeth removed. One of the roots was so long, it would never come out on it' s own. How old is your pup? They will be fine. How many teeth need to be removed?

Maggie was spayed last week at 5-1/2 months, and as long as she was under, the Vet also pulled her 5 remaining baby teeth......two of them were upper canines which weren't even loose as far as I could tell. She was sleepy from the anesthetic the first day, but on the 2nd she was eating and chewing on her toys like normal. Of course, she was on pain meds which might have made a difference. Hope all goes well with Charly!

Charly is 6 months and has 3 canines to be removed. I scheduled surgery for a Friday so we will be home the weekend when she's recovering.

Thank you Louann for the well wishes. I feel better knowing she should recover quickly.

The poor lill thing. I was wondering if retained teeth are common in Havanese but Leylas case is most likely uncommon in any breed. I imagine she must have needed to eat soft food for a while. TY for the post.

Maddie had some top front teeth taken out she was fine her adult teeth were in and the baby ones were in back. Soft food is a good idea. We had some xrays done at the same time. I think our vet drew blood to determine what kind of anesthesia to use.

Maddie at 5mo old

My vet has not recommended any xrays. I think I will mention it to her and see what she thinks. I dont want to have Charly girl back at the vet to have any more teeth removed if I can help it. TY

Interestingly enough, it wasn't too horrible. As you can see from the picture, she actually had two rows of teeth; her baby teeth and her adult teeth. So when one row was removed, she still had some to chew with. I did feed her Beef Gravy baby food for a few days though, and she loved it lol. But she showed no signs of discomfort which was great.
