Default When would you consider teeth to be retained?

Hi guys,

Just as the title said: when would you consider baby teeth to be "retained" and require vet help?

Our puppy has double upper canines for a couple weeks now. The adult canines are half way in. The babies are stuck in really good, and don't look like they're going anywhere... But she is just 6 months old. All her other teeth are done, I think.

So would you wait it out? Does it take a while for the upper canines to fall out sometimes?

She is our first baby small dog.

Thanks!

I would have any remaining teeth removed at her spay.

Oops, sorry she isn't being spayed. I should have said that earlier! Thanks!

(or, I should say rather... She is being very LATE spayed. Too late to leave puppy teeth)

Why? Is she a show dog?

Got it.

I'd want them out pretty soon as to not impede her adult teeth. Her mouth will be crucial as you show her. Her bite as well as how the teeth look.

Okay... I admit I am already slightly concerned about how a couple of her incisors line up. I will speak with the vet after the holidays.

She isn't for breeding, just getting my first year or two of show experience, so I am not TERRIBLY worried. But I think you're right. Sooner rather than later.
