Unhappy Not loosing baby teeth???

I am new to this little dog world, as you all know. Boo's got some :"double" teeth coming in and baby teeth not leaving). I wish I had found you guys before I had his neutered, as I would have seen some of the savy advice as to waiting till they are around 7 mos so you can check the teeth situation. I also wish that my vet had mentioned it. Now I fear that he may have to go under again. Anyone care to share thier experiences with me...I have done the tug o war thing with a frozen washcloth and that loosened and removed one tooth. But the Front" fangs" are tight and staying put. I feel so bad for his his little jaws must be aching...

Have you talked to Boo's breeder about this? She/he may have some insight for you on teeth being retained or coming out on their own. Don't wait too long though, double teeth can impact the alignment of Boo's jaw.

I don't have any advice, but Izzy had double teeth for a couple of weeks and the baby teeth eventually fell out before she was spayed. The breeders would know better than I, though.

Sorry to hear about the impaction! If the tug of war or other tactics don't work then you'll probably have to put him under. If I were you, I'd consult with a vet dentist and inquire about have his teeth cleaned and sealed at the same time, sometimes dentist will do that for little or no added costs.. My friend just had some teeth extracted from her dog and they did the cleaning for free and charged $50 for sealing. not too bad.

I tried all of the tugging, I even was wiggling the teeth to try to get them out. No luck. Smarty did have to go under for her upper canines. It only takes a couple of minutes for the vet to pull them, but I understand your worry.

We took a quick run to the Vet yesterday - she wanted to see for herself. Her opinion was that since he will not be 6 month till the end of Nov. to wait and see if they push out. The main concern was the canines, but she feels they are coming in normally. The insizors are double now but she think they will loosen and fall out. He does have on molar that is double but it is loose now. The others have loosened and "dissapeared". I tried the breeder but got no respose back. She probably isnt going to be my best resource, as she isnt the most reliable...

I hate to be a wet blanket, but I've only seen double incisors on two Havs and they ended up needing to get them pulled. If the baby teeth didn't come out with the adult teeth pushing through, they could be pretty well set. Can you wiggle any of them?

Just be really careful with his jaw still developing, that those retained teeth don't hinder the growth. Don't worry, but do keep any eye on them.

I agree they will probably need to be removed. The vet showed more concern over the canines, but they arent in fully yet, they just broke the surface... She said that if by 7 months all the new teeth where in and old ones where still hanging on then we would extract them. She said that the positioning of the adult teeth was proper so far...

I can wiggle one of the incisors. The other is pretty well in there. The vet also said that they have very shallow roots. So it might still get loose...I am watching closely. I can tell that his jaws are bothering him since he is chewing like madman!!
