Missy will be 6 months old on the 13th of this month. She just lost her last puppy tooth. Yea, finally, I feel so bad for them when their teeth are loose. I was wondering if anybody else kept any of their dogs puppy teeth. I have a little container with some of Sissy's and Missy's puppy teeth. Mostly just a couple of the bigger ones. I didnt find any of the little tiny front teeth.

I never found any of the baby teeth. I'm creating a scrapbook for myself and his breeder so I would have been thrilled to have found some teeth. You should keep them if you have a puppy keepsake box or scrapbook but if not, you should toss it cause you're just collecting things you'll never use again. At least with the memories systems you'll have a systematic way of looking at your memories.

I found a couple of the canines and one molar from each of them. For a couple of them, they were chewing on them. I didnt know what they had in their mouths so I told them to drop it. Thats how I got a couple of them. I think they usually eat them.

Mickey is 22 weeks tomorrow and the vet said he still has his baby teeth. I haven't seen any puppy teeth around so I'm wondering when they lose them.

Dudes i know puppy's need to get adult teeth in by a certain age and i've heard the puppy teeth fall out but my pups 5 months and i havent seen any teeth fall out? Do they really fall out for all puppies and if so how can i tell? Also what if they don't look like thier falling out and he reaches 7-8 months? I'm really curious about puppy teeth right now. =/

I have 2 small dogs. Missy is 5lbs and Sissy is 11.5lbs. They both lost their teeth around 5 or 6 months. Different breeds may lose teeth at different times, I am not sure.

Honey - I think we are in the same boat. I plan to bug the vet on Thursday and ask about the teeth. I read the post about the teething being complete and I thought maybe I missed a doggie milestone or something.

I have heard of puppy teeth being pulled if they don't come out but that is a vet issue.
