Temporary teeth

April 20, 2020, 8:07 AM
Q: I have a Morkie who is 1 year 10 months old. He never lost his top canine baby teeth. 5 months ago, the vet said they may have to be pulled. We notice our Morkie was not eating his normal food. Worried, we took him to the vet. The vet informed the new canine teeth are coming in and the baby canine teeth are still solid. Is this normal that they would need to be pulled or should we just wait it out?
A: Any temporary teeth still remaining will need to be extracted unless they are only loosely attached.
