Default Getting puppy teeth removed

Stacy, thank you so much for looking at Gustave's teeth at the dog show. He's going in tomorrow to get the retained teeth taken out.

I had a suspicion we were gonna have to do it eventually, so it was very helpful to have someone as knowledgeable as you look at him. I spoke to the vet after the show and he said the exact same thing, get them removed soon.

So well, he's going in tomorrow. Poor baby, anesthesia again. But I guess it has to be done. Please keep us in your thoughts. I'm just glad there will be no post surgery cone involved this time.

Sorry it wasn't done during his neuter!!!

Honestly, it's an easy procedure and the worst part can be the grogginess from the anesthesia. At 9 months, there is not a lot of chance that they will fall out spontaneously and if it was just one, i could see waiting but since he still has all 4, it needs to be done.

Give him a big kiss for me!! Oh and ask the vet office to keep shaving to a minimum - they should be able to do that so you don't get the messy shaved leg syndrome

Got it! Minimum leg shaving + no electric heating pad. I always forget to tell them everything so taking notes this time.

Didn't think about that! I guess he won't be able to eat kibble? For how long? And he looooves yogurt.

At what age do your vets recommend having retained puppy teeth removed? Mine said to bring her back at 9 months if they still hadn't fallen out and I didn't know whether this is the usual age. Her canines weren't ready to come out at her spay. Is having to have them pulled common in Malts?
