At what age do puppies start to loose their baby teeth? Ellie is 17 weeks and I found what looked like a double tooth .

They start loosing their baby teeth around 4 to 5 months. It probably is a tooth you found. Just put it under her pillow; maybe the tooth fairy will bring her a little treat :D

I only ever found one of Jaspar's baby teeth; I gave it to my friends' little son and of course he loved it!

ok if we're confessing - I have one of Rupert's baby teeth, it's stuck into his baby book, which Eukanuba were giving away at that time - lots of space for photos and places to write about your pup, and to draw around their paw :lol: :lol: :lol:

Just like a baby book but for puppies...I did ring them a couple of years later to see if they would do them again, they said that they had been incredibly popular but they didn't have any plans to make them again :(

ok this might be a dumb question but I dont know the answer....so when a puppy starts to lose its baby teeth the teeth fall out right? As in I will find it around the house?

You might be lucky enough to find one or two but I think most times they come out when the dog is chewing on something & they probably get swallowed.

I have a couple of my Sam's baby teeth. They are sitting on one of my shelves reserved for trinkets of a more unusual nature. icon_whistling

I had the pleasure of stepping on one of Cody's molars with my bare feet :yikes MAN did that hurt!!

I found that ice cubes made Zoey's teething process go by quicker as she was always chomping on them. When I thought Zoey was super ill a few weeks back, she kept vomiting. I couldn't figure out why until I saw one of her back teeth was hanging in her mouth and making her gag. Poor baby. One fell swoop with a napkin and out it came. She immediately felt better and was prancing around. :?

:D Probably not as yummy as chicken neck bones, but a nice little source of calcium anyway.

Just as a side info when we had Ginger fixed, the vet removed all her loose teeth since she was anestheized.. She had a few teeth that were hanging loose and were ready to fall out and I know she had a difficult time chewing stuff.. :flwr:
