Yep. When I got Twiggy, she had 11 retained baby teeth. I started giving her chewys and bully sticks and 10 of them fell out on their own. If they don't fall out, when he gets fixed, they can be pulled. If already fixed, then you have to schedule a dental to get them pulled. But try chewys first. The chichen jerky gives them a good work out and so does bully sticks. I would stay away from rawhide.
You can get in there and wiggle them too. If they are well seated and the chewing doesn't help loosen, then get them out when he is neutered. Brody had a bunch pulled at that time and the roots were HUGE. Like 1/2 an inch long. There's no way they would have come out on their own.
I still haven't scheduled her to be spayed. Still afraid and wanted to wait probably a couple of months more. How many more baby teeth does Ruby and Faith have? I remember reading that your vet didn't want to take them out when they got spayed. Are the baby teeth left the ones in front too?
Quigley had 16 retained teeth they took out when he was neutered. It was questionable whether they would be able to before surgery. It has to do with how they are processing the anesthesia and how long they can keep them under. Or at least that was my understanding the way the vet explained it to me.
I just recently noticed that my boy Pablo has retained several of his baby teeth as well. He is scheduled to be neutered on June 3, so we are going to have them pulled at that time.
I had to do a lot of searching. The prices from different veterinarians ranged from 40-90 dollars per tooth that needs to be pulled. WHAT A RIP OFF. Thankfully I found "the spay clinic" in Edmonton that only does spays and neuters and things that go along with it like tattooing, dew claw removals and tooth extraction and by some miracle they only charge 5 bucks a tooth! WOOHOO! lol
