I am currently going through this same thing with Boo, who will also turn 6 months on the 27th. I took him to the vet when I noticed this starting at 5.5 mos. I was very upset since we had just been there two weeks before for his neutering and was not loooking forward to another round of anethsesia to remove teeth that didnt fall out. She said that we should wait until he was 6-6.5 mos to make any determination if they need to be pulled. She did look at the ones that were coming in and said that they were coming in properly, except for one in his lower row of fronts teeth but those werent double, just crowded, which she felt might correct itself as the others fell away. She and I were very concerned about his molars which were double and his canines since those would effect him the most if they didint fall away. As of this past evening, the molars are no longer double. But the top canines and insizors are still double and not loose. I might have jumped the gun a bit by being concerned before I needed too. I didnt have this problem with any of our goldens, so this was all new to me. The Vet also indicated that it could be 7 mos or more before all the baby teeth are out! I guess I was looking for the same thing that happens to human babes to happen to Boo, the tooth falls out before the new one comes in. Our Vet said that the teeth come in behind the baby teeth on dogs....
