How long do Great Dane puppies teeth?

Congratulations on your decision to welcome a new Great Dane into your life! Whether it’s your first dog or you haven’t had a dog for a long time, there’s a lot to learn about how your Great Dane will change with age and how to deal with it. Here, we focus on the process of teething. Yes, puppies lose their baby teeth, just like human babies We’ve developed a dog teething schedule so you can know exactly what happens when your furry friends grow up.


For the 2nd to 4th week, the Great Danes were divided into two groups

When your Great Dane’s baby teeth start to grow out, he will still be with his mother and breeder. At this point, his eyes have opened and he is still nursing.

For the 5th to 6th week, the Great DanesĀ  were divided into two groups

Now your puppy’s baby teeth should be growing. Dogs usually have a total of 28 deciduous teeth. At about this time, breeders are likely to have weaned puppies in their nests, as they learn to eat moist, soft puppies’ food.

For the 12-16 week old Great Danes

It’s about time that you can take your big Dane home (some keepers let the puppies go to the new owner’s house in eight weeks, but others have to wait about a month, depending on the breed and the keeper’s preference). This is also when your puppy’s deciduous teeth begin to fall off and permanent teeth appear, you may start to find small crumbs to rice-sized teeth around your home. Anyone who has taken care of a teething baby knows that this process is painful! You should provide your puppy with safe chewing toys, such as hole or treatment pod toys, at this point in his development. Also, have your veterinarian examine your dog’s mouth to make sure everything is going on as it should. This period of time is also very important for the socialization of the Great Dane, that is to say, let your Great Dane get used to the new experience under low pressure. A lot is involved in this process, but because of the theme of our teeth here, it’s a good time to start touching your dog’s mouth, outside and inside. In this way, you can let your dog enjoy brushing his teeth.


Great Dane aged 6 months and above

By that time, your Great Dane will be about six months old, and all his young teeth should be lost and his adult teeth should be growing. In general, adult dogs have about 42 teeth (interesting fact: This is 10 more than a person). If you find any residual deciduous teeth, be sure to let your veterinarian know, as they may need to be removed.

Keep your Great Dane’s teeth healthy

Now that your Great Dane has a mouth full of pearly white chewers, your job is to keep them that way. The feeling that the dog does not use the tongue to expel the chewed food from the teeth, coupled with the plaque in the mouth, will lead to bad breath in the dog if the periodontal disease occurs, serious medical problems. By brushing your teeth regularly, you can prevent or reduce the need for veterinary cleaning, which usually requires anesthetizing the dog. First, gently scrub your teeth with a finger brush or gauze pad. You can learn toothbrush and canine toothpaste later. Toothbrushes should be soft, and toothpaste must be suitable for the dog’s system (enzyme toothpaste can destroy dental plaque mechanically and chemically). Toothpaste for human use can cause stomach discomfort if your dog swallows it. Teeth can also be cleaned with a paste made of baking soda and water. In addition, certain foods, treatments, and other products can also help reduce plaque.
