Hello my golden will be 5 months old tomorrow she's been losing teeth like crazy for a couple weeks the only 2 she hasn't lost are her top 2 k9's. The permanent ones are approximately and 1/8 " long and the baby teeth still fill solid. Do you think they'll just fall out or should they already be loose? Thanks in advance

OK, So the root of the baby tooth is supposed to resorb leaving only the crown attached to the gums and then the crown will fall out.
What has probably happened in your pup's case is that the root has not resorbed or not completely resorbed and the adult teeth are coming in at a position that is not normal
This should be checked by a vet and the baby teeth removed. The roots on these teeth are longer than the part showing and are very delicate and easily broken while trying to extract them. Also it is easy to damage the new adult tooth during this procedure so get someone that knows what he/she is doing.
Hope this helps.

Give them time. On a large breed dog they should fall out by 6 months as the adult teeth come in they should loosen up and fall out. On small breed dogs they maynot fall out by that time and need to be taken out manualy at the vets office.

Lots of chew toys and rope toys will help losen them up. If not out by 6 months then call your vet.
