Gizmo lost his baby tooth

My baby is growing up! :baby2:
As I was wiping his teeth today with doggy dental wipes (he doesn't like his teeth brushed :rolleyes:), a little tooth popped out of his mouth :laughing:
Anyway, my little rotter just turned 1 on Dec 31, and this is his first loose tooth (that I know of) :eek: Quite exciting :D
Is there such a thing as a doggy tooth fairy??:laugh:

Aww, your Gizmo sure is growing up! :)

You know he may not be as old as you think. My dogs started to lose their baby teeth at about 4 - 5 months old. By the time they were 8 -9 months old they no longer had any remaining baby teeth.

I'm not ashamed to admit that I have kept a few baby teeth from both of my dogs (Diniz and Elvis). They are properly stored on a preserve solution in a small glass container with a metal lid on.

LOL, Randy, you should just go and get a puppy and pay for the sins later on :laughing:

Gizmo's birthday was Dec 31 2014. The breeder had a record. What's really odd is that Gizmo's milk canine teeth (those spiky ones) are still there together with the permanent ones. So he has double:eek:
How cute! Little Gizmo is growing up so fast! :D

That's adorable ;) I hope the Puppy Tooth Fairy brings him something tasty :)
Hehe, he also loves bacon, and the Tooth FAiry has been notified.:D

Dee,animals can lose their first set of teeth later but most do lose them by 6 months. One of our cats is now 2 years old and has never lost his baby teeth. He now has two lots of teeth in his mouth but the baby teeth will have to be removed by the vet shortly. Your Gizmo will hopefully lose all his baby teeth eventually and you will have to make sure you keep one for prosterity. He sounds like a gorgeous wee guy.

I fully agree with Toni. You should have your Gizmo checked by a vet in order to have a proper look at the tooth issue, as that can really lead to dental problems, worse case scenario periodontitis.

You're very welcome, I hope everything goes well at the vet's! :)
If possible, do give us an update on your Gizmo's dental consultation.

Hello all!
Just to let you all know, I have taken my little Gizmo to the vet today to have his teeth checked (his baby teeth haven't fallen out yet and are causing trouble to the permanent ones). Thanks to all of your suggestions, it turns out it was a good idea to consult with a vet.
Gizmo needs to have some dental work done, baby teeth removed, and some plaque build up removed as well. Poor little guy.
So, that is what we are doing next Wednesday :scare:
He was a trouper at the vet's office and the vet fell in love with him.
He also (now that he is one years old) weighs a whopping 5 lb :laughing:
Thank you everyone, especially Ana (aluz) for advice given in my previous post :wave:

Thanks for the update, I'm wishing all the best on Gizmo's dental appointment and following recovery. He will soon sport a star-quality doggy smile! :)

I'm glad you took Gizmo in to have his teeth checked as Ana recommended. :thumbsup:

I totally agree with Randy -- we want "before" and "after" pictures. :D

I'm sure Gizmo will do great during his dental work on Wednesday and we'll be looking forward to your update on his progress in this thread.

I've merged your other thread about Gizmo losing his baby tooth into this thread. ;)
