    Default Late teething?

    Hello dear friends, my pup is 4 and a half months old, but he doesn't show any sign of new teeth so far, should i get worried?

    I'm fairly certain that teething starts at about age 5 months.

    Check with your vet if you have concerns about it.

    Not to worry, Bandit still has all his puppy teeth and he is also 4 and a half months old (born June 3rd)

    Default Teething

    mounie you have nothing to be worring about! I have had dogs of nearly a year still getting in adult teeth - but the norm is about 5/6 months.

    Yep, Amie is just over 6 months and she has been teething heavily (if that it the term!) for the past month or so. Right now all her adult canines are up and I think they are the last to appear, correct me if I'm wrong.

    She still has one of her milk canines, so two teeth are present at the moment, but this was the same for the other 3 canines and they have all come out in the last few weeks. So going to give her some more time to see if this one decides to come out on its own accord before bringing her to the vet.

    Also, not sure about others experiences but Amie really hated teething (who would like it I suppose!), she would paw at her face and generally be uncomfortable, but this only really started when her canines started appearing.
