Bonnie had the canines pulled at her spay. The upper two are in, but at nine months she still doesn't have the lower ones??? Hope the adult ones are in there!

Mylo is coming up to 8 months at the beginning of January. I think most of his teeth are in but his two bottom canines were half through while the baby teeth were still there. The left one came out and I think the right is becoming wobbly now.

If you're wanting to show her I'd personally have them pulled as soon as the adults are 1/2 way in. Having baby teeth pulled at the right time can save a bite from going off depending on placement of teeth. For me I always get them pulled when the adults are 1/2 way in & babies are firmly rooted. Scared to wait any longer. With lower canines especially since they tend to come in narrower than the babies & the longer you wait the less chance they have of "spreading" when babies are removed.

Kerri was spayed very young (10 weeks, not my choice) so she had to have her teeth taken care of separately. My vet wanted to pull her 2 retained canines at 6 months, her adult teeth were 3/4 of the way in and her baby ones were stuck really good. That's what I did and everything seems to have worked out fine for her.

Thanks guys! Lowers came in great. Actually, she lost them both before the adult teeth peeked through the skin, so there was a short period there where the lower canines were completely absent and she looked really goofy. Anyway, this is part of the reason the uppers are concerning me - they really are showing NO inclination of going anywhere!

We have an appointment with our vet in 4 weeks. She is going on holidays as of today, and we won't let anyone else do it. Also, the pup is on Prednisone for "Puppy Strangles" and we have begun the taper but the vet really wants to see her down to 2.5mg Prednisone every OTHER day before she'll do even a minor surgery. And she will still put her on oral antibiotics as a precaution. So we're balancing doing it sooner with waiting an appropriate amount of time with respect to the Prednisone.

Bad timing for everything. LOL

(And again, while she is a show/performance puppy, she is NOT a breeding dog. )
