Need Help For a Friend--Please

My friend who has a 6-month old wonderful Havanese puppy, has been informed that the puppy will need dental surgery because he has second teeth coming in behind baby teeth that have not come out. She is understandably upset for sweet Max and wondering if this is something you are familiar with.

Breeders especially may have information on timing of a 'fix'. I have read on the internet that if this is necessary it could be done at the time of neutering so that two anesthesias would not be needed, but if this procedure is done by a veterinary dental specialist, it would likely not be done at the same time as neutering.

Help please from anyone with information on this problem.

THANKS!

My Hav had two baby teeth pulled at the time of his neuter. No big deal at all.

Oh yes, very very common- Have the vet do it at the same time as his neuter. A regular vet can pull the baby teeth out no problem, you dont need a special doggie dentist!

Exactly the right advice so far.

Yup - my pup had 2 teeth pulled when he was neutered. No big deal.

Thanks for the replies and help.

Tom, my friend's vet seems to be indicating that the new teeth are actually coming in through the hard palate about 1/4 inch behind the baby teeth and that this might be unusual. I don't know anything about this condition but am certainly hoping for her sake and Max's that this can be taken care of without major surgery or problems.
