    Default Pup has tooth coming in with baby tooth

    My 6 month old pup is almost done teething. He has one of his puppy canines left and the adult tooth is coming in as well. It looks kind of bad. Should I try to help him out by pulling it or having a vet pull it? Or should I just let it fall out on its own?

    It will probably fall out on it's own. I wouldn't take the dog to the vet over that unless it clearly is an issue (root won't let go, skin tearing). My dog had one like that and I just pulled it .

    It is pretty common for the adult canine teeth to be nearly fully errupted before the baby tooth lets go. I wouldn't worry unless it looks like the adult tooth is coming in crooked because of it, which would be unusual.

    I had one a few years back that had double top and bottom looked crazy mean. And less than a week later little ones fell out and adults were all the way in.

    Give your dog a bone to chew on. Bet it pops right out.

    He has a nylabone that stays in his kennel with him. I'm really surprised he hasn't knocked it out yet. I'll let it go. The adult tooth looks to be coming in nice and straight.

    I usually turn the pup loose with the adults with a tuggy toy. One good yank by the adults on the tuggy toy and the tooth is history.

    Get a nylabone or something of that sort! I have a 5 month old right now that has the same baby tooth with the big canine right behind it! The right side was the same but he broke it playing with a ball or bone! Just wait it out! If he isn't in pain I would try pulling once you see it's pretty dead
