If it is daytime office hours where you are, I would call the vet and ask! :hug:

Don't worry she's only teething.:D;) Often people don't even find their pups milk teeth as they swallow them (and come to no harm at all) sometimes as in your case you find one, or see that one is very wobbly, just leave nature to take it's course.

As DaveCav says all puppies lose their baby milk teeth at about this age.

The only thing you need to worry about is what she may chew while the adult teeth are coming through the gum.

The need to gnaw at anything and everything can be overwhelming, so provide plenty of chewy toys and treats

They chew everything!!!! Get alot of good sturdy chew toys that do not hurt their digestive system.

I may have misunderstood the OP. I took it to say the pup lost part of a tooth, as in it broke off. :confused:

Don't worry, I found a puppy tooth in my top the other night.Little Miss had been chomping on a button and out it came.
Its unusual to actually find the lost tooth.

We found several of Claire's teeth. One I saved (I know, I know, I'm such a momma).....but, this is the first dog where I've found the teeth.

Based on her age, I'm betting she's getting her adult molars in, and what you found was a whole baby tooth. :hug:
