    Panda's puppy canines were NOT coming out on their own and because her permanent teeth were starting to grow in crooked I was advised to have them pulled. I'd done all the recommended things, retrieves, chew toys, rawhide, marrow bones, etc, that will usually help them work loose. She was was so funny-looking with that mouth bristling w/teeth (one of which always seemed to snag her lip), but all those teeth were starting to cut up her gums. Vet said he'd removed a fair # of puppy teeth but hers were so stubbornly in there he had to knock her out and actually cut them out, otherwise it might've re-arranged her adult teeth and left her with a permanent bad bite.

    I would give it a couple more weeks, but keep an eye on the tooth, if the baby tooth starts to discolor, or if the gum looks inflamed, I would have the tooth pulled. Generally, it's not expensive; I recently had the procedure done on a 6 mo old ylf, and a 6 mo old clm. I paid $65.00 for the ylf, but my vet is very resonable. It should just be anesthesia and the tooth pull, which was $6.00 at my vets.
