So Gryphon is in the transition of losing puppy teeth and getting his permanent teeth.
When I look in his mouth, I happen to think that this transition is not going really very well. He lost all of the little teeth in the front (incisors?) just fine, but I am seeing that his adult canine teeth are coming in just behind his puppy canine teeth. Some of his doggy molar type teeth are starting to come lose, but I am really worried about the canines.
Will these remaining puppy teeth affect the placement of the new canines, or will they shove the puppy teeth out of the way?
I called my vet, and they told me to wait until he was 8 months old.
He isn't chewing excessively, either, you would hardly know that this dog is a puppy let alone teething.
Should I encourage him to chew more?
