    Nm, I believe I screwed up looking and confused the premolars as the molars. I will recheck and verify tomorrow as she is sleeping now!

    I had a male that didn't get his premolars in until he was way past a year in age. Give it time. Or they may never come in. Some lines have missing teeth. Usually not a problem.

    well that makes me feel better. my vet advised me to come in get her under anesthisa and get some xrays and extract them if they are impacted or will cause a cyst?
    has me worried!!

    Ask your breeder. As stated above, some lines are notorious for missing premolars. I never had any missing until doing one breeding and then I noticed that my keeper was missing one. Ends up her daddy was not listed as "full dentition", so I just missed that part. definitely genetic in Labs.
