Puppy teeth - stupid question

Today I saw one of Skipper's teeth hanging by a thread. What do I do? Will he choke on it of he swallows it? It doesn't seem to be bothering him.

I've never heard of a puppy choking on a swallowed tooth...I'd keep an eye on it, though...the reason we have Maggie's 4 puppy fangs in her puppy book is that I pulled each out of my big toe after she lost them.

LOL...........my breeder told me yesterday Liza had lost quite a few already. If I want to find them I will probably have to look in Tess's tail!

Can you give him a little chew toy? That should finish the job. I don't think there is much of a choking risk - I found most of Cookie's baby teeth in her poop. (Not that I was looking, but sometimes they stuck out )

I never found one of Payton's puppy teeth for the same reason---probably imbedded in Maya's tail, or ripped out trying to hang on to a tug toy!

They commonly swallow the teeth that fall it. It's nothing to worry about.

Thanks everyone. He lost his tooth finally. I found it on the floor. Must have been the chew toy.
