Hi Natalia,

Puppies lose their baby teeth between the ages of 4-6 months. The first ones to go are the incisors, followed by the canines and premolars. Last to go are the molars. There is usually evidence of a permanent tooth in the form of a nub when the baby tooth falls out.

Please take your terrier to a vet for examination if the permanent teeth fail to appear.

Best,
Judy
