Teething

Hi my puppy is 6 months old and she is losing her teeth. She has double rows of teeth in some place. She also has very bad breath, could this be the cause?

Yes the mouths can smell really bad while they are teething. This is due to inflammatory products and plaque accumulation in between the teeth. Once all the deciduous teeth are shed the breath should improve. If there are deciduous teeth present when the adult teeth have reached their normal height, the deciduous teeth should be extracted.
