|Hi Catsters! Jerry's mom here:
I adopted Jerry three weeks ago, he's about 5 1/2 months old and his permanent teeth are coming in. It's been a long time since I've had a kitten, so I'm trying to remember the normal process of teething...
Jerry's adult upper canines look to be most of the way in, but his kitten canines are still there. I know that they'll usually fall out on their own, but occasionally they need to be extracted by the vet.
I'm checking his teeth several times a day for changes, but so far his kitten canines don't show any sign of coming out. At which point do you think I should start to worry that this isn't progressing normally and have the vet intervene?
Thanks in advance for any advice!
