Default When do puppies lose their baby teeth?

Hello,

Just a quick question...roughly at what age do puppies start losing their baby teeth? I ask because yesterday I noticed a little bit of blood on Ryder's bed and realized he lost a tooth or he may have broken one, ironically, on a dental chew...argh! I found the tooth on his bed.

I took a look at his teeth and didn't notice any adult tooth pushing through...

He's running low on kibble and I want to switch him to raw starting with chicken backs for a few days and then chicken quarters. Ryder just turned 4 months...should I hold off on meat w/ bone-in? Just worried whether or not his baby teeth can handle the bone.

Thanks.

I think 4 or 5 months is normal for losing baby teeth. I never found any of my first puppy's...I'd just notice a little blood on her Kong...I think she swallowed all of them or something lol.

Hey there 2Manydogs, I recognized the photo of Wodanico Steptown ... he is the stud of our new puppy Moxie (Wildwood Boxers) ... Moxie is a White (Brindle) with beautiful features ... She has one totally black ear which really makes for an attractive look. She has the head and chest of her father. We are extremely pleased with her; she is our first boxer.

Thank you for the information on the loosing of teeth ... great help ...

Cheers DJEAL

Like others have said, 4-5 months they teethe.

I have a 5 month old, Destiny who is currently teething as well. She's raw fed and she still manages quite well. She takes a bit longer but that's all.

I would avoid the backs because of the teething. I would start on the chicken quarters personally. Remember to remove all skin, fat and organs. Usually they leave a bit of the kidney in the quarters so you should be cleaning that out. Put a few slits in the meat itself so your pup can have a fighting chance. Eventually you won't have to do the slits because they learn how to eat raw quickly. I would also recommend you hold it for a few times but it isn't necessary.

I also have a 9 month old, Karma who's raw fed and we went through the same thing. I still sit right beside them at each meal and most times holding their food and feeding by hand. Some say they are spoiled, I say I'm just being careful. That's the way I choose to feed and it works for our family.

So if you want to go raw, I say go for it! Your dog will thank you for it! Just make sure you are prepared and you shouldn't have problems.
