Puppies’ teeth will naturally loosen and start to fall out at around four months old. This is to make room for their adult teeth.
Your dog’s adult teeth are held securely in their sockets by attachments called ligaments and the gums form a tight seal around each tooth. Loose teeth can be very painful, especially when eating, they usually need removing by a vet under anaesthetic.
Book your dog in for a check-up if you notice they have loose or wobbly teeth.
