Has anyone had to have their Havs baby teeth pulled? I have had to have Divas pulled and now today they are pulling Augies. I give them plenty of bones to chew and a raw diet and kibble. These are the two fang teeth. I was just wondering what might have caused this?
We finally took Bella to the vet after trying rounds of tug of war with her and giving her chew sticks to get her baby teeth out. She's 8 months old and the baby teeth should be out by now.
Our vet said she needed to be sedated and have them removed. He said it's not an easy job getting the canines out because of the deep roots and it's like taking a wisdom tooth out of a human.
She has three or four baby teeth that are next to the adult teeth. She will be fully sedated to have them removed. We haven't gotten the estimate for the job but it won't be nearly as expensive as her spay. One thing I can say about our vet is that we totally trust him with sedating Bella. He's extremely careful and monitors the animal with the help of other assistants.
He said that it's not uncommon for toy dogs to not loose their baby teeth.
The vet just called and said he had recovered fine and they plucked his ears and clipped his nails. All is well again. I don't like to have to put them to sleep, but I trust my vet as well. Augie is 8 months old. Thanks for the info.
I was worried about that when we first got Boo. His "fangs" and some of his molars stayed in for several months with his adults fully in. We had already had him spayed, so I was worried about putting him under again. One day I looked and they were gone. I was so relived. I was told that sometimes they do stay longer in toy dogs than in bigger dogs which I am used too. Im glad that everything is fine with Augie....
Boo is georgous, maybe I should have waited too, they probably would fall out. The vet said it could mess up his bite, even though we don't show I felt like I better go ahead and do it. He is home now and 125.00 later, everything went well.
We had to have Bunni's removed, too. I think it's just a matter of genetics. Some of them lose them easily and some don't.
Hav's that I've seen also have different types of teeth. Some have 'toy dog teeth' which in my opinion only , tend to not want to fall out. Some have 'big dog teeth' and those seem to tend to fall out naturally. Nothing scientific, y'all, just an observation.
