    DefaultTeething question.

    My lab has just gone 3 and a half months old and is doing great. Much better behaved then i had expected, i have heard some nightmare stories haha. Anyway yesterday i noticed both her bottom front incisors were missing and today one of her top ones was gone to. I haven't been able to look really close but it doesn't look like any adult teeth have broken the surface yet. From my research as far as i can tell she is at the the right age to start teething i just have a few questions. Is it normal to loose so many at once? and is it normal not to see emerging teeth right away? Just want to make sure im on top of an issue if there is one.

    Yes, it is normal to loose so many at once and not see the emerging adult teeth right away. They will grow in quickly.

    Thank you very much for the reply, she seemed a bit grumpy today don't blame her. I was only wondering because I thought maybe it wasn't normal because loosing all your front teeth at one time in the wild could really hurt your survival couldn't it?

    It does not last long, the new teeth start appearing very quickly. I never thought about what the consequences would be in the wild but since the adult teeth grow in so quickly I don't see it being an issue. Human children manage just fine so I am sure a dog or wild animal would be just fine. They can be grumpy when teething, there is so much going on so quickly I don't blame them! I kept wet wash cloths in the freezer and offered them frequently to help with the discomfort.
