If they're not all out by the time she's around eight months I would get whatever baby teeth she has left pulled. I usually wait that long before I do it so they will only have to go through it once. If the dog is being spayed or neutered at 6mo My vet just pulls them all out then.

I read on the internet that dogs can lose teeth up to 8 months of age.

Tuffy lost almost the bulk the of his teeth right around that age. He still has 3 retained puppy teeth, but the vet said he doesn't want to pull them until Tuffy has to be put under for something else.

Does Tuffy get things stuck in between the baby teeth and the others? That was the problem I had with Hedwig. I was hoping when I pulled whatever was in there out that a tooth would come with it but it didn't happen...LOL

Do you mean that he has both baby and adult teeth in the same area? On the bottom "eye" teeth on both sides, Catcher has two teeth in the same area... one in front of the other... is this what you are referring to?

Yes, that's what I meant. She had a ton of teeth in that front area.

Massimo had the same problem at 8 months, so I made an apt. at the vet.  He said that Maltese could lose teeth up to 10 months....I was worried it was causing him pain, he wasn't eating normally, and he spent his days chewing the edible nylabone.  Well, at 10 months the last of his retained baby teeth finally fell out.  The vet said if they didn't he would pull them because they would cause pain because the rest of his adult teeth would keep growing and put pressure on his teeth and jaw casusing painful crowding.  I also noticed his tear staining had lightened up a LOT after his baby teeth fell out.  I also noticed it was a lot less painful for ME to play with him after they fell out (his baby teeth were SHARP!!)

I noticed a big change as far as the tear staining as well
