Gustave is 8 months. Our vet said the same thing as Stacy, since it's all 4, and they are all pretty tight, they won't fall out on their own.

We could wait and see till he turns one year old but he said it's highly unlikely they will just fall out now.

It'll depend on the teeth... If he needs stitches, it may be a few more days than if they come out easy.

His mouth may be sore, so he may not feel up to eating much... soft will probably be best for a few days.

I was thinking you give kiddos ice cream... so you could give him frozen yogurt There's a place near us - self serve frozen yogurt - and they have a plain one that Gus and Grace love. No sugar so it's kind of tart.

My kids like Frosty Paws or Dogsters. It's in the ice cream section at the grocery.

Got it! I remember we once got him some doggy frozen yogurt and he just kept farting all over the place.

Maybe we will tolerate his farts this one time!

Sending prayers for Gustave. Thankfully, Bella lost all her teeth on her own. We will be thinking about him and wish him a speedy recovery!

I went through the same thing with Bailey. He was neutered at five months, but had to have his upper canines removed when he was eight months old.

I promise you Gustave will be fine. Baby teeth have basically no roots (did you ever see any of the teeth he lost on his own?) They pop out easily, no stitches needed. Bailey came home with Tramadol per my request ( I NEVER give Rimadyl!), but he didn't need it. He didn't need a special diet either since they were his canines (aka "wolf" teeth) which basically just rip and tear food. Obviously you won't give him a bully stick when he comes home. LOL!

When you lost your baby teeth as a child, it didn't hurt afterwards, right? Same thing. The biggest worry is the anesthesia, but if he had pre op bloodwork before his neuter and did fine, he shouldn't have a problem.
