Lightbulb Aging a puppy via dentition (teeth in, teeth shed, teeth adult) LINKS

hey, y'all!

the age of puppies is not always known, as rescues, shelter-pups + strays are a guesstimate;
it is also POSSIBLE for breeders to (deliberately) mislead the puppy-buyer, in order to get rid
of those troublesome poo-makers a week or two (or THREE ) early.

thus it behooves the wise puppy-shopper to have some idea what the teeth in pups at various ages
should look like, and check the pups dentition to cross-check their progress as they grow + change.


since pups of various ages have different needs (food, nutrients, care, exercise, vax...)
and different abilities, it is important to be able to differentiate between infants + toddlers,
toddlers + pre-teens, teens + young-adults.

Quote:
from Chinaroad Lowchens of Australia - all about retained deciduous canine teeth

Estimated Age --- Teeth Development
2 - 4 Weeks ----- No Noticeable tooth growth


3 - 4 Weeks ----- Deciduous (baby) canines erupt


4 - 6 Weeks ----- Deciduous (baby) incisors and premolars erupt


8 Weeks ------- All deciduous (baby) teeth are in [14 upper, 14 lower]


3 1/2 - 4 Months ---- No noticeable permanent tooth growth

[it is all under the gumline, not visible]
SO... an 8-WO puppy will have *all* their teeth EXCEPT their molars, top + bottom...
all the incisors, all 4 canines, all pre-molars are present.
_________________________________________
adult incisors erupt between 3 to 5 mos;
adult canines erupt between 4 to 6 mos;
adult pre-molars usually erupt between 4 to 5 mos,
and molars are last, between 5 to 7 mos age.
