Deciduous Tooth Removal
Retained deciduous tooth removal becomes necessary when your pet’s baby teeth fail to be replaced by permanent adult teeth. Starting at around three months of age, adult teeth begin forming—occasionally the emerging adult teeth don’t push out the original baby teeth. The extraction procedure is quick and generally only requires light anesthesia—recovery usually takes about seven days.
