Your Puppy’s Teething Timeline
Have you recently adopted a puppy? Congratulations on your new addition. It’s a good idea to be familiar with the teething process so you know what to expect. This way, you can make sure there’s nothing amiss when it comes to your puppy’s teeth.
Your pup is born without any teeth at all. The puppy teeth or “milk teeth” start developing between two and four weeks of age, all while your puppy is still nursing from their mother or being bottle-fed. Somewhere between six and 12 weeks of age, little Fido should have all 28 of his baby teeth (he’ll start eating soft puppy food during this stretch of time). Past the 12-week mark, the baby teeth will begin falling out as they’re replaced by the adult teeth. When your puppy is six months old, all 42 adult teeth should be in place.
