Full Answer

Puppies are born without any teeth. At around 3 weeks of age, the puppy teeth start to come in. The puppy teeth are fully established by 6 to 8 weeks of age.

The incisors are the first of the teeth to come in, followed shortly thereafter by the canines. The molars are the last of the teeth to come in. During teething, the gums can be quite painful, and most puppies chew on everything to try to relieve the discomfort.

  • Q:

    How do you find out how old your dog is?

    A:

    While it's not possible to determine precisely how old a dog is, it is possible to make a fairly accurate estimate of its age by examining the condition of the dog's teeth. In addition, a veterinarian may be able to provide an even more accurate guess by means of a physical exam or running a series of tests to look at the dog's joints, bones, muscles and organs.
