I have a Boston terrier who just turned 1 year old. He still has 2 puppy canines (one upper and one lower). One adult canine that has been just peeking through the gums for about a month now. im just curious how long does a normal canine take to grow in and is the other 2 puppy canine a problem if they are not even loose(no adult teeth growing beside either) since he is 1 year.
thank you

normally adult canines are coming in around 6 months and fully in by 6-8 months. Brachiocephalic breeds sometimes have atypical development as far as teeth go and it can take longer... though a year is pretty unusual. Deciduous teeth can complicate the normal eruption and usually should be removed if still present after 6 months.... but sometimes not always easy to tell if smaller teeth are deciduous or abnormally tiny mature teeth. Best to get an exam and see what your vet thinks.
