Hi! When does Havaneses normally start losing baby teeth. My vet is concerned my 18 week pup has not lost any. The breeder says it absolutely fine. Love to get everyone’s thoughts.
Thank you!

I think 18 weeks is fine for not having lost any. She probably will soon. They are usually are WELL into teething by 6 months. Havanese are a toy breed, and many get their baby teeth later than larger breeds, which also means they lose them later.

At what age do retained puppy teeth need to come out? Issac just turned 8 months old and has 1 retained upper canine and 1 upper retained incisor.
I would have your vet look at his mouth and make sure that the retained teeth are not causing his bite to go wonky. That is the issue. If is bite is still fine, it’s OK to wait a bit. But if the retained teeth are making the other teeth crowd, or go in the wrong directions, or if the retained teeth are so tightly held between other teeth that there is no room for them to move and loosen, it’s a problem.
