What's with the teeth??

Wesley is 5 months now and I swear I have picked up atleast 3 teeth off the floor and taken another 2 or 3 THIS WEEK out of his mouth because he's just chewing on them and I couldn't figure out what was in his mouth. Is this normal?? I looked in his mouth one week and he was missing all the bottom row of teeth. The next week they were all in. Wow, why can't kids get them in that fast! I guess maybe i just never paid that much attention with any other dog we've had, but it seems strange.
Anybody?

You're lucky you found the teeth. I only found one of Kodi's and guess the other ones got eaten.

Wesley is so adorable! Love his cute ears! Well, my Lizzie is 5 months and she has already lost her puppy teeth in the lower front and the upper as well. As far as I know, it is normal for them to lose teeth at this age. You might want to get him checked with the vet to see how many of his adult teeth are in and if there are any puppy teeth that haven't fallen out. Sometimes they need to be removed surgically.

Good luck!

Wesley is adorable. I am also one of the lucky ones and have several of both my boys teeth. It is amazing how once they start loosing them they all seem to follow. Sometimes the K-9's will take a little longer.

Welcome to the forum!!!!! I have a lot of Jillee's teeth...I am going to scrapbook them sometime but for now they are sitting on a piece of paper tucked away...I should count and see how many I have. Jillee got spayed last week and they only had to pull one tooth....so she is growing up....She will be nine months...and she weighs nine pounds...just at nine pounds though!!!

Tori's almost 5 mos old and I haven't found a single one. The vet checked her this week and said she's lost several. Guess she's either eaten them or ???

Between 2 dogs, I only found Roxie's last baby tooth and that was well after it should have fallen out.

Sounds pretty normal to me. I wish I had found more of my girls' teeth. I have a couple from each dog but that's it.

Welcome to the Forum!! Wesley is just adorable.

That's completely normal. I found 7 of Kubrick's teeth all told (plus the one that was removed by the vet). I only kept one though.
