My Bruno has still puppy teeth he was born May 26th so his 7 1/2 month. I asked the vet twice and they are not concerned the 1st time and the 2nd they kept asking if I am sure of his age, to wait a bid longer.
Just checked my insurance and unerupted teeth are covered if I signed up before his 6 month birthday. I missed it by a few days.
Should I be concerned? It‘s the canines and the vet does not even feel them coming in yet. He likes chewing but not very hard bones and has not tried any furniture - lucky me ?
My vet gives them til 9 months...if double teeth, I take the baby teeth out.

Xanthe still had all four baby canine teeth when she was spayed at 7 months old and my vet didn’t want to know about taking them out at the same time saying they just needed longer and apart from which she’d had them snap off whilst trying to remove them in the past so wasn’t at all keen to do this.
As it happens they did all eventually come out on their own, but Xanthe was two years old when the last one finally departed!

I wouldn't worry about it too much. Just take advice from the vet if you are concerned.

I got an appointment for a 2nd opinion for my Gordon to the dental specialist for his spot on the roof of his mouth. I have the recheck Thursday and see the dentist the flowing Tuesday. I looked at the website and read up on Bruno’s teeth and now I worry even more. http://www.animaldentalcenter.com/ht...-frameset.html
I did write an e-mail to the breeder and see what she says. I tried to take a picture I believe he also got a malocclusion tooth. Typical pug .... this is as good as it gets. I am happy he let’s me rub his gums with tooth gel and do not want to spoil it by being forceful

Sorry I don't know too much about dental stuff, but as far as I know they don't normally do anything about a malocclusion unless the tooth is going to cause damage to the gum/lip tissue, grinding against another tooth or it's preventing the dog from eating normally.
As for the baby teeth - are we talking about the incisors? Xanthe was two years old before her final baby incisor fell out naturally. I think the vet I was using at the time had a bit of a phobia about removing baby teeth since she refused to do it at the same time as when Xanthe was spayed
