Is this a tooth problem?
Bella is a little over a year now and I'm still finding these itty bitty puppy teeth on the floor. I was able to look in her mouth and there is this big tooth way in the back. It looks like there's no room for it in her tiny mouth but there it is.
I've never had a dog who lost puppy teeth so late. And I've never had a dog with such a small mouth and such big teeth. Is this normal for a Havanese or is this a problem?
She'll "scratch" her mouth and she has lots of saliva--all signs that she's teething. She's a smaller Havanese with smaller bones (unlike DaniGirl who is sturdy and a bit taller). Knowing teeth and bones are linked, can this be a sign that she'll have teeth problems? She's had four teeth removed--incisors--and that helped, for a while. I wish the vet would have taken out all the baby teeth when he was in there, but then that could be why we switched vets.
I know I'm droning on but it's become a concern that's not going away on it's own--yet. Thanks for any help.
