I wonder why your vet didn't just take an xray of his mouth while he was asleep? That would have told him whether there were adult teeth under the baby teeth or not.

I don't know, I'll ask? The baby teeth not coming out isn't worrying me, it's why his calcium level may be off. From 3months until the BAT test he was on Red Barn and a puppy food. When his BAT came back, the vet said to give him adult food because of the lower protein. He has been on Fromm 4 star and Earthborn Holistic small breed with some Fresh Pet.

A simple x-ray would have answered the question. It is not uncommon for toy breeds to:
1. Not have adult teeth
2. Have adult teeth that come in late
Both of these are usually genetic...but often breeders in the U.S. do not pay attention or even know what full dentition in a Maltese looks like. Neither is a big deal - baby teeth can be left if they are not loose and there is no adult tooth to come in.

So glad he came through the surgery fine. Can you talk to the vet with any questions when you pick Dewey up? Otherwise call the other vet tomorrow to discuss what's up. It might not be a big deal so have them clarify. There is AE calcium that could be added to his food.
