    Default Adult teeth behind puppy teeth

    My pup sully was born June 29th 2013. Lately he hasnt been eating well, has been tired, and has been chewing anything in site. We have a varity of chews from nylabone teething bones, to deer antlers, to chewy toys. He gets a small pigs ear once and awhile and naws on those. The other day i laid him down to see if he has lost any of his puppy teeth because i have not seen blood or any teeth. I was horrified to see that he has adult teeth coming in behind ALL his puppy teeth! They are all poked through behind the puppy teeth. My 2 year old pug i got as a rescue so i didnt deal with teething. My late pug hank i had from a puppy and he retained four puppy teeth but not all of them.

    Is there still time for those puppy teeth to come out or should i be giving the vet a call?

    hmm.. has not been eating well, but IS chewing lots of things...

    I guess for the teeth or the not eating, a vet visit would be a good idea...

    At ~6 months, you are down to two meals a day? Does he eat one more than the other?

    he eats two meals again one in the morning and one in the late afternoon (5esh). He eats a little then walks away then goes back to it and eats a little then walks away. He used to scarf his food down.

    His mouth might be sore from teething. Pugs often have to have baby teeth pulled. It's very fast and easy since they're baby teeth.

    Scootaloo still has a couple of her baby teeth in, vet says they'll pull them when they do her spay. My big fear, and what may be happening with your pup, is food getting caught between the adult and baby teeth and causing decay. I use an enzymatic toothpaste that's poultry flavored to keep her teeth clean! Until you can get to the vet, maybe just make sure whatever he is eating is nice and soft!

    He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, till the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion.

    I suggest a vet visit. Loopy still had some puppy teeth left at age 1 and they were starting to bother him to the point where his gums were swollen and he wouldn't eat his food. The vet had told me to wait and see if they'd fall on their own, but I wish I hadn't listened to her. He ended up getting them pulled and thankfully they didn't cause any problems on his adult teeth.
