    My Cocker puppy is teething and currently has all 4 canines coming through. The milk teeth are still there and not loose.
    At vets for something else and there was a suggestion I have them removed when he is castrated.

    I don't neuter my dogs without reason. He is not yet 5 months old!

    Any ideas to help the teeth shift apart from chews and bones, or just leave for several months -how long?

    It is quite common, they will probably come out on their own but if they have not in a few months you might want to consider having them removed if they are causing a problem.

    Thanks for the reassurance.

    Never had it before in all my dog owning.

    He's happy with 8 Canines!
