I talked to Dewey's breeder and she said they typically lose their teeth between 5 and 9 months old and may have missing teeth. All of my other Malts, including Laurel did not have teeth that were lost past their spay or neuter. Laurel does have 2 missing teeth. The vet tech told me she carried Dewey around the office, so that everyone could smell him. She said he was the best smelling dog she had ever sniffed!! LOL He began howling in the cage and could 't believe that loud voice came from that little body! He ate ,drank and is resting now. I might have a peaceful evening!!

Wow, good to hear. I hope Dewey recovers soon. Or are you hoping he stays peaceful for some more time, haha?

What puppy food was Dewey on? Did you feed it according to the recommendations on the package? How much Red Barn did you add?

Bailey's breeder had me feed him Royal Canin small breed puppy formula for at least the first six months before switching him to Fromm. She also requires her puppy owners give NuVet vitamins for the first year as part of her health guarantee:

"3. Fortifies Bone Structure.
Puppies and kittens, like children, require strong bones to support their active lifestyle. A new pup or kitten that can stand, jump and run must depend on their nutrition to give them a healthy skeletal structure. NuVet PlusŪ uses Oyster Shell which has the proper ratio of quality Calcium and Phosphorus for optimum absorption. Along with Magnesium, these are the vital elements for the structural framework of bones."

Products

I wonder if supplementing him with NuVet vitamins would help?

Happy to hear Dewey is good after his tonsillectomy. If he is happy, healthy, energetic and a good weight, I wouldn't worry very much.

Dewey is very energetic, healthy , and he weighs 5 pounds!!! The vet thought he was so small, and wanted to know how big his parents were?????Laurel only weighs 6 pounds, and he never said she was small??

I'm glad he did well in surgery and hope his adult teeth come in soon so he can have that all behind him.

Well I'm so glad Dewey did so well and came out of the anesthesia so quickly! As for the calcium level, did he say it was actually off? And which way? Too high or too low? I'm wondering if the vet wasn't thinking 'ALL LIFE STAGES' food and was thinking he needed a puppy formula. Just a thought.

Glad his neuter went well! Preston was just like that and came out of anesthesia really fast. When I picked him up he was totally normal (unlike London who was very groggy).

He was thinking the calcium was low because some of the second teeth haven't begun to come in yet, with baby teeth still there. I had blood work done, and everything was normal. After talking to Dewey's breeder, and her telling me some of her lose teeth between 5 and 9 months, I'm not worried. I made a mistake, about Dewey's weight, he weighs 4.8 not 5 pounds. He weighs exactly what Laurel weighed when she was spayed at 6 months. She weighs 6pounds now. He is back to his old self this morning, wild!!!!!!He ate like a little pig this morning!
