Teeth extraction with castration

Hi!

My dog will be castrated in two weeks, he'll be 5 month and a half. The breeder (who's a vet technician) will be there. We asked her to have his remaining teeth extracted during the operation.

Has anyone been through that process? Is it safe?

Thanks!

Is there any particular reason to have the teeth removed?

I'm assuming it's the baby teeth?

Oops, you're right, I'm talking about the baby teeth! :-)

We've been told that the baby teeth could stop falling after the operation, thus creating two rows of teeth...

We just got our 5.5 month old male neutered. He had a lot of baby teeth left and the vet asked if we wanted them out but I said to just leave them. I just thought it was too much in one day. He also needed a small hernia repair.

My previous puppy (a small terrier) lost his teeth after his neutering so I'm hoping they come out on their own

If they don't come out, then I will go back and get it done later I guess.

That is fairly typical behaviour, particularly if the adult teeth are starting to come in on top of the baby teeth. If the baby teeth remain it can cause the adult teeth to not grow in correctly.

My BC puppy almost had to have hers removed, but eventually they fell out and she wasn't spayed until after a year old.

I've never heard of that before. My pup lost all his baby teeth after being neutered. I would consult with the actual vet on whether this is a good idea of not.

Thanks guys! I'll see how teeth falling goes in the next weeks, and question my breeder thoroughly. :-)

I think it happens in some breeds more than others, the teeth staying in?
Which is why the breeder may be recommending it

I really like having as little done to them as possible, unless absolutely necessary. Maybe wait until baby teeth are all out before you have him neutered.
