We had little Jango neutered last week, and while he was under, the vet pulled six baby teeth (he had several adult teeth coming in, but the baby teeth weren't budging). He took several x-rays and referred us to a dental veterinarian, as he was concerned that a number of adult teeth were also far below the gum line and not even close to erupting. Today we had our consult with the specialist, and she said to bring him back in another 6 weeks to see if he is making progress with those teeth popping through; she wasn't too concerned about that, as he is still 6 months old. However...he has an underbite, and his top incisors are hitting on his bottom canines, and the top incisors are starting to be pushed out on an angle. She would like to pull those eventually, to prevent periodontal disease, but she wants to wait and see what's happening with the unerupted teeth first before she takes out the incisors.
Has anyone had any experience like this? I'm just so bummed out for our little dude...
