Is this what your dogs lower canine teeth looked like coming in?
That makes me feel a lot better. Can you answer this also so I have an idea of how to proceed...Hi,
That's what my Taylor's teeth looked like. She had two rows almost. No wonder she chewed the wood trim, sheetrock, wood doors, etc. The baby teeth came out and the permanent ones are all there and nice and straight.
Thank you very much for your help. I appreciate it.If she is only five months old, you might could wait another week or two as the new tooth will pop into the right place when the baby comes out. I really wouldn't wait any longer than that or you might get permanent displacement of the new tooth. Try gently working it around to loosen it if she will let you,

Were you worried when you saw them and did you consider getting them looked at and if so, how long did you wait until they corrected themselves? How old was she when they corrected themselves and was it the same on top too?
Ok thank you so much.Yes, I was worried. I worried all along on Taylor's teeth. She had her regular number of incisors and then one fell out and I couldn't remember if I was looking at her baby teeth or her adult teeth but I only saw five incisors and they are supposed to have six. Then finally the sixth incisor came in and that's when I saw the second row of canines starting on the inside. I thought well crap, am I going to have to put braces on this kid, LOL, not really but I did get concerned. I was due to take her back for a follow up on something else soon so I waited to have him look at her teeth then. By that time the adult canines had pushed the two baby canines out and her mouth looks great.
She's 5 1/2 months old and I believe they only had the two rows for maybe a week or ten days. It was not that long at all.
I agree with LindaH that you can play tug of war, give her bully sticks or other things to chew on. Unfortunately my Taylor honestly chewed on the woodwork, sheetrock, anything she could get.
I don't remember any of my other Dobes looking like this but I probably was not that observant.
If you are going to the vet this Saturday I don't see any reason to worry yourself sick between now and then.
Let us know.
