Question:

I've had Shayna since she was 6 1/2 weeks old. She is now 7 1/2 years old. In the last year, all 8 of her front teeth (upper & lower) have become loose. I did have her teeth cleaned this year but didn't let the Vet do extractions. The teeth are still loose and visibly mobile. I need to know if this usual and perhaps particular to JR's as my Bichon Frise did not have this problem. Also, should I allow extractions of the 8 teeth? Will this save the remaining teeth? Will she do okay without them? Thank you!
