Maddie is going in first thing tomorrow to have her baby teeth pulled . I would really like to know How will she feel and should I get caned food ? And anything else that I can do for her. Thanks for your help
She is doing good. We picked her up about 5:30 and she was pretty out of it all night. She had some extra big teeth doubled up and the vet said their was hair caught in the teeth. Guess whose hair that would be. Yes sister Zoey. The hard part is we have to keep her from chewing and playing with Zoey until the stitches melt. The pills she is taking are large It is hard to have her get it down with out chewing. She fights me to just put it down that girl does not let me open her mouth.How is Maddie doing after her dental work? Hope she is resting comfortably. Augie sends a lickie!
The vet made it sound like she had two canine adult teeth The bottom big ones. He was very busy at the end of the day and I could have miss understood him. I thought it was a bit weird that her breeder warned us of making sure those first baby one were out . I was wondering if it could be a genetic problem. I'll try to google it.:biggrin1:I don't think it's uncommon for Hav puppies to retain a few baby teeth, particularly canines. (though Kodi didn't) I think it's much less common to have them retain a whole mouthful of teeth!
I googled it to although maddie had two sets of permanent teeth. I could not find any thing about that.I believe that it is commonly seen in small breed dogs. I think that the canine teeth tend to be the problem, one of my havanese had one baby canine removed, my moms yorkie had 2 or 3 that wouldnt fall out, and the same with her morkie (maltese yorkie). I googled it quickly and it seems to be common.
