There's a few phases to get through when you have a puppy, and the teething phase is certainly one of the most challenging.
When a Maltipoo is teething, there is quite a bit of discomfort and itching taking place. This can send a pup into a frenzy of sorts, as he looks for something, anything, to cure his teething woes.
However, despite what is happening, there are steps that you can take your help your puppy and keep your belongings from being destroyed.
Here, we'll look at the age that this takes place and what you can do to help your Maltipoo as your pup transitions through this stage.
The Maltipoo Puppy Teething Timeline
Puppies are born without teeth, but soon they will have them.
First a 'puppy set' of 28 deciduous teeth, and then an adult set of almost twice that amount of 42 teeth.
The time table for the puppy teeth coming in is:
- 3-4 Weeks Old – The puppy's canines (the longer teeth on each side in the front of the mouth) begin erupting
- 3 to 5 Weeks Old - The incisors (the tiny teeth in the front) begin coming in
- 4-6 Weeks Old – The premolars (larger side teeth) begin to erupt
- Puppies should have a total of 28 milk/puppy teeth by the age of 8 weeks.
