Caesar is almost 6 months old and has been losing his baby teeth for awhile. His bottom canines havent been loose yet and the adult teeth are coming in right behind them. Will they become loose or will he need to have those pulled?
Same here. When Tiki was neutered he had some remaining baby teeth removed. Later he had to have another removed that they had missed.
If you aren't having Ceaser neutered you will want the have the vet take a look as tooth problems are common in Maltese. The sooner you have it taken care of the easier it is on the pup and the better his teeth will look.
Fay lost all her teeth by the time she was 5 1/2 months. When I noticed she was starting to lose her baby teeth, I gave her lots of hard chewing toys (chewing bones) to play with and after just one month she had lost them all.
I don't think Maltese commonly have overbites. I've never heard of it being any more common than any other breed. Casper is eating hard things on his very back teeth now because a lot of his front/side teeth are really loose or already fallen out.
Good news, Caesar pulled one of his canines out that had the new one behind it chewing on a new bone we got him. He still hasnt lost his top canines but they are loose. Now his other bottom canine with the adult tooth behind it is just barely loose, better than before! I just dont wanna have to have our lil' guy get his teeth pulled...ouch.
Ok, I know I may sound REALLY dumb...but how do you know if they have lost their teeth or not? And when do they start losing them...when should you be concerned and ask the vet? What if you are not planning to get them neutered yet...do you just go in for a tooth check up? How do you get them to hold still to look at their teeth...let alone wiggle thme to check for loose teeth?
Confused about the teeth issue. The vet didn't say anything when I took him in at 4 months when I got him. He looked at them though.
I would think Brinkley works out any loose ones on his edible nylabone things. He chews on them constantly and hard...hmmm. But I don't know WHEN this is supposed to happen? He is 20 weeks old...born 3/12...
