Looks like we might have an issue
Yesterday I took Ash to the vet because I had some concerns regarding some excess discharge he's been having from his eyes. Turns out the eyes are fine, I'm just treating with terramycin for awhile, but the vet pointed out that Ash is retaining his puppy teeth. Both of his upper adult canines are coming in right NEXT to the puppy canines. SInce the adult canines are just beginning to emerge I'm keeping my fingers crossed that they will still push the baby teeth out. The vet said they should be out in the next 2 - 3 weeks, if not they may need to be surgically extracted! It may also affect his bite. So far he has a scissor bite but it does look like on his right side the upper and lower canine are not even. Hopefully this will all correct itself and I can stop fussing! BUT his first show is 4 weeks away and I'm wondering how this will play a role in all of it?????
