    Looking for advice, I have a 14 week old puppy, Lola, who has an overbite. This doesn't seem to be causing her any pain, she is eating well, playing, mouth doesn't seem to be sore if I touch her gums. I have taken her to the vet and a vet dentist and they are both recommending pulling the bottom canines to allow her lower jaw to have the best chance to grow. There is no guarantee that this will work. Has anyone else had a similar situation? Did you have the teeth extracted or let nature run its course.

    Wow... Never heard of this. I mean I have seen dogs that had an overbite, but never imagined anything like pulling teeth to correct the problem. I would def get another opinion. Just to be on the safe side. I would be very curious to hear what you decide and what the outcome will be. Please keep us updated.

    It's a good thing that you didn't went through with the surgery.
