    DefaultBlack upper gums from lower canines

    Hi there,

    I have a 4 month old lab puppy and I noticed when I was looking in his mouth the other day that he has two lines on his upper gum from where his lower canine teeth have been rubbing - I was just wondering if this is something to be concerned about or if this is normal? I've noticed that his breath does smell a bit but otherwise he seems healthy and it doesn't seem to be giving him any trouble. Haven't had a chance to sit down with him to try and brush his teeth since I noticed but that's my next plan!

    Thanks in advance for any advice

    Alison

    If you think the marks are from his bottom teeth you should probably talk to your vet. I have never heard of that before but I am hardly an expert! It would worry me...

    Sometimes the hardest part isn't letting go - but learning to start over.

    If you think it looks abnormal, best to have the vet see your dog.
