Visual difference between puppy and adult teeth?

I'm starting to grow new teeth and now mommy can't tell the new from the old. Guess she hasn't been paying attention to my teeth very well!

the adult teeth are more rounded at the tip so they are less sharp

I'm a blessing.

Adult teeth are thicker and larger. The puppy teeth are thinner and sharp pins.

I have noticed front teeth get replaced first, then back, then canines. Or something like that.

Cricket is still teething at almost 6 months old.

Small dogs can- have BIG jobs!

Don't forget to keep a close eye on your pup's canine (or eye) teeth. Often in toy dogs, these teeth are retained and lead to "double fangs." If such a tooth is retained, it can cause the new tooth to grow in crooked. So if you start seeing double fangs, you may want to consult your vet to have the puppy canines removed. Usually this is done when the puppy goes in for altering.
