When do chihuahua puppies start to lose baby teeth? How long does it take for them to get all adult teeth?


my bichon is almost 5 months and started losing her teeth and within days new ones are growing in as we speak. The processs happens very quickly and I have yet to find a tooth anywhere so I have no clue as to what happens to them when they fall out. Remember all dogs have 42 teeth, so that is how many your puppy will get.

    they start losing them whenever they are 6 months old or so and should start growing them at about 9 months or so.

    Puppies gradually lose their teeth, and grow new ones, you can especially tell, because when they bite on their toys, they will likely bleed a little bit. When your puppies teeth grow in all the way, you can tell, because they will be bigger and sharper, teething starts at about six months, and it doesn't last too long. When all of their teeth grow in, make sure to brush them atleast once a month. =] Make sure you don't use their toothbrush, though!

    Puppies have all their baby teeth by 7 or 8 weeks old, they start to lose them around 3 – 4 months and should have all their adult teeth in place by 6 – 7 months.

    The last ones to come in are the top incisors (fangs).
