Our expert says:
It is possible for your vet to age a puppy from it's teeth development
Estimated Age - Teeth Development
2 - 4 Weeks - No Noticeable tooth growth
3 - 4 Weeks - Deciduous (baby) canines erupt
4 - 6 Weeks - Deciduous (baby) incisors and premolars erupt
8 Weeks - All deciduous (baby) teeth are in [14 upper, 14 lower]
3 1/2 - 4 Months No noticeable permanent tooth growth
(it is all under the gumline, not visible)
SO... an 8-WO puppy will have *all* their teeth EXCEPT their molars, top + bottom...
all the incisors, all 4 canines, all pre-molars are present.
adult incisors erupt between 3 to 5 mos;
adult canines erupt between 4 to 6 mos;
adult pre-molars usually erupt between 4 to 5 mos,
and molars are last, between 5 to 7 mos age.
If you are uncertain then ask you local vet or veterinary nurse to check.
