double canine teeth

HI, I have a question for you out there, my daughter-in-laws 6 month old havenese has a double set of canine teeth on the bottem. Do you think the right one will fall out? Should we give it alittle more time, or go have one set pulled soon.

I would def. check with the vet on that. Just call them, they may be able to just guide you over the phone withouth charging you that arm & leg!!

Hannah, i have a similar problem with my Oreo. He has retained his upper baby canines. I have called the vet about this, and he is telling me it will be about $350 to take them out because he will have to be put under general anesthetic. Will this really harm Oreo's mouth? If it will, I will definately have to save for this because I know I did not have that extra money saved up.... sigh

Gosh, my vet pulled Skiver's for free. He just charged me for the anethesia, which was like $10, and the office visit, which was about $28, and we had to be there for something else anyway. It was the second time he pulled teeth for free. I guess I'm lucky to have this vet!!

He told me it was common with small breed dogs, and if you didn't get them pulled, it could interfere with the growth of the new teeth coming in, and he could have trouble eating. Just like kids, I guess. With all Skiver's problems, I sure didn't want him having problems eating as well. He's already too little.

Logans molars came in without releasing the old ones, The old ones just got stuck between them and then started to collect food & stink. My vet just pulled them out (no need for anesthesia) and didnt charge me either.
Boy you got a real deal with Skiver!!!

I would notify your breeder about this . They need to know about this . I do not think this is a normal occurrence a second row of teeth .I would definetly have your vet check your dog .
I know that retained teeth does occur as cosmo had one but it fell out on its own .
Asta had his canine teeth in the wrong place . I notified the breeder just so she show know there was an irregularity - I felt they neeeded to know for breeding . Otherwise he was an amazing dog and the vet did not think it was a big deal ..

Shelby's two bottom canines fell out the night before she was going to be spayed. Lucky, otherwise they probably would have wanted to pull them. The problem though is that one of the new teeth grew in at a funny angle.

coco's vet noticed the permanent teeth starting to come in before the baby teeth fell out. that would result in a crooked bite and cause problems, he pulled 7 teeth when she was spayed! her teeth all came in fine. i am glad he was keeping an eye on them.

Interesting I started a new thread on the same subject today. The anethesia is what I fear most. How to know when?

Agree this can be common in smaller breeds... I go back for my checkup on this tomorrow....He also prefers to remove extras while nuetering if possible.!!
