Does the Tooth Fairy come for puppy teeth? We say yes! Here are some of the actual conversations from our Facebook Dog Chat with the help of Dr. Brett Bauscher of Canyon Small Animal Hospital.

Q: Our 5 month old German Shepherd lost a tooth today and the gums bled for a long time. Is that normally what happens when they lose their puppy teeth or did she lose an adult tooth? I don’t remember bloody gums with my last dog but the puppy stage was 13 years ago!

A: Per Dr. Bauscher – If the puppy tooth is whole, then it is normal. If the tooth is fractured, you need to take your puppy to your vet to have the remaining tooth extracted. Good luck!
