My 9 week old Yorkie/Poodle puppy has no teeth?!

Hey guys! I have a 9 week old Yorkie/Poodle puppy! She is precious and I love her SO much. But... She still has barely any teeth! I am concerned and thought maybe someone could give me some advice on this subject. I've had her since she was 6 weeks old... and when I first got her two teeth grew in within the first two days, in the far back... But then it stopped and she hasn't grown more since! We have another pup in the house, same age/mix.. and she has ALL of her teeth and has had them since we got her. I took her to the vet and they said we'll wait a few more weeks and see what happens. But I thought I'd ask anyway. Has anyone experienced this? How worried should I be?

You have a yorkipoo too... I have an almost 9 year old one.

I would say keep an eye on her, make sure shes eating and drinking and get her to the vet to be checked out.

Where did you get her from?

Smaller dogs develop slower than big dogs. They also can have issues with not having their teeth come in/not losing baby teeth. You shouldn't be too worried since you already have notified the vet. Just make sure she's getting enough food and water. A couple of warning signs for dehydration include: a dry nose, and when you gently lift the skin on the back of her neck, it doesn't relax back down.

My dachshund didn't lose some of his baby teeth and the vet just pulled the baby teeth while he was getting neutered. Then my dog's adult teeth came in fine. It's also important to give plenty of things for her to chew on. My dogs liked the rope toys and the kong puppy toys.
