FAQ: My puppy’s teeth are sharp. Do I need to have them taken out?

A: There is no need for them to be removed. These sharp teeth are the same as that of a toddler – a temporary set of teeth. Temporary (or deciduous) teeth will be replaced by permanent teeth in due time. After 3 months of age, permanent teeth will start to appear in both dogs and cats. Comparing both set of teeth, temporary teeth are sharper and smaller than permanent teeth. Just be careful not to have your finger stuck between those razor-sharp puppy teeth.
