I need to count for the other 3, but...Bryco has a whopping 26 adult teeth in his mouth :) Was wondering, for those of you able to count, how many adult teeth yours have? They say adult dogs should have 42 teeth but I don't think this is true for chihuahua adults!

I counted Brody's teeth and he has only 21!!! Dogs should have 42. What a rip off for him. Hmmmm... just underscores how important it is that we keep the teeth clean and intact. He sure can't afford to lose any!

Just took a pic .... You can see where he's missing the premolars on top and maybe the bottom too? He's also undershot! Obviously!

Oo u know what Tracey I need to re-count Bryco's too, he's lost the 2 pre-molars he had and who knows if something else came out too!

I know chi's aren't bred to need their mouths for any strong/working purposes but teeth are still nice hehehe.

Miley is none too pleased with me (or you Kristi!), I just pulled her out from under the covers on our bed to attempt a count. It looked like right around 30, but I wasnt able to get a definite number she kept licking my fingers trying to get me out of the back of her mouth lol. Im guessing shes higher than the other guys so far simply because her nose is much longer.
She just burrowed back under the bed and let out a very loud grumble as she laid back down, what a grouch.

Ok I was in for a shock hehe! I guess B has grown some more teeth.

Bryco - 30 teeth. He SHOULD have 32 but he is missing 1 lower incisor and another is a baby and will not be in there for much longer. His muzzle is 4.25 around, and .75" long.

Oakley - 36 teeth. Her muzzle is 3.25" inches around, and .8" long.


Trigger - 37 teeth. His muzle is 5" around, and 1.25 " long.


Laurel - 32 teeth (2 adult teeth have been pulled so that means she had 34 up til the past 6 months), her muzzle is 5.5" around, and 2.25" long.

I am SHOCKED How many teeth Oakley has, as well as that Bryco indeed got in some new teeth???

OMG, Brody is a gummy. That's so sad!! LOL!!!

Ok, dogs are supposed to have 42 teeth! And yes Kristi, there are supposed to be a couple teeth behind that big molar in the back. Brody doesn't have those either!!! Poor toothless guy!

Here's a couple charts that are good for visualizing normal canine dentition .....

Wow LOL I guess Brody is gummy then...its a good thing he has a mummy that makes sure the teeth he has are so good and clean! B didn't have those last molars in the way back last I counted, I was actually quite shocked to see them there! His mouth has been rotten the past 2 months no matter how much I brush/RMB and I guess that helps explain it. Hes too old to be teething...but I guess not!

Zippy has lost a lot of teeth somewhere along the line. He doesn't much like for us to look into his mouth but my best guess is that he's got about 10-15 left.
