Teeth?

I discovered this morning that there are teeth growing behind the fang looking teeth (the bottom ones, on each side) in Glory's mouth. Is this common, normal? I tried to wiggle the tooth to see if it's loose, but it doesn't appear to be loose at all. Should I worry?

Pixie STILL has a retained baby tooth at 2 years old, with her adult tooth erupting underneath it!! The vet said it's loose and will eventually fall out. She's been chewing on flossies quite a bit, so it should be history soon. I give her Petzlife to keep the bacteria under control. It wasn't that loose to start, but is definitely getting looser by the week.

How old is Glory? Kipling had double canines at six months when he was neutered and they were pulled as part of that procedure. No big deal

it is pretty common for that to happen in the smaller breed dogs.

They can be extracted during a spay or neuter very easily.

It is fairly common, but do make sure they are removed during spay/neuter. I had a pom whose baby teeth were not removed. She ended up with some pretty serious tooth/gum problems because they never fell out on their own, and food would get caught between the two teeth. Once the baby teeth are out, the adult teeth will fill in the space like they are supposed to.

Hi fellow Sacramentan,

How old is Glory? Huey had his last baby canine fang tooth fall out at 9 months old. It felt solid till the day I found it missing too. Give her lots of things to chew on to help loosen her baby teeth. I thought for sure the vet would have to pull it, I'm glad I waited. As long as it doesn't affect the adult teeth, give it some time. I gave Huey one of the puppy toys that can be soaked with water and frozen. He loved chewing on it, probably helped numb his mouth alittle.

Hello, neighbor! Glory is 6 months. I read somewhere playing tug-of-war could help too.
