Losing Teeth

As Kubrick is my first dog ever, I have some questions about his puppy teeth. He has so far lost three teeth (two of which he swallowed, LOL) and I was wondering if anyone can tell me how many more he's supposed to lose? I know that he needs to lose all of his baby canines (like I said, he's lost three so there's one more to go), but are there any other teeth that are supposed to go?

Also, when do the new teeth start to grow in? Kubrick's have yet to appear, though I think I see areas where the gum is "bulging" like there's a tooth about to come out, but I might be imagining it. Anyone know how long I have to wait until his adult teeth come in?

Count yourself lucky that he has lost them before the others came in. Most of us have experienced where both sets are in together & the vet needs to interveen. I dont know how many they actually lose but it always makes me smile when I find one on the floor, as if my baby is growing up.

I know what you mean, Laurie. I have one of Kodi's that I carry in my wallet. DH thinks I have really lost it.

I have one of scudders baby teeth only because my dog sitter found it. All the rest I guess he swallowed. I know at 6 months old his adult teeth weren't quite all in yet but close.

Capote swallowed all his teeth. I figured this was one of those things that God takes care of..lol so I never went to the vet. For a while his canines came in as doubles but then finally the both fell out. He's got all his teeth now.. Just like kids all of the teeth must go and new ones come in.

If your hubby thinks YOU'VE lost it, he would call the men in the white coats for me! I have ten of Rufus' baby teeth laid out on top of our piano! They're next to a turkey egg my sons best friend gave him along with some feathers. The whole display looks like I'm trying to cast a spell or something.

Lina, If he's lost the canines... those long sharp ones right?... then he's most likely lost more than you think! I believe they replace the tiny front teeth first. Rufus is still getting in some of his adult teeth but I think he's lost all the baby teeth now. He's 6 months old today.

Yoyo is just a week past 5 months but I believe that he's replaced all of his baby teeth; the two upper canines look to be about 1/2 way grown. I was so horrified when his first canine fell out because I didn't know that those were supposed to fall out too!

O.k. I was getting on here to start on a thread on loosing teeth and I was glad to see that one was started. I just noticed today that Jillee lost two teeth. I do not know which ones they are. I am going to take a picture of them. Does she loose all her puppy teeth then all new ones come in? I was so proud of her and then I was sad because my baby is growing up!!!!!!!! She was chewing on a treat and I noticed it. Then I was getting things ready for bed and found another one. Is it usual that she may not what to eat at times? I tried to get her to eat her dinner and she did not want to. We are going to add a little water to it in the morning so maybe it will be easier for her. I wonder if the doggie fairy will come????? I may put a little treat in there when she wakes up!!!!
