  What if my dog lost his front teeth?
I got a puppy and I think he might be around 3 1/2 months old but I am not sure. He is a mini schnauzer, and he chewed threw a baby gate and lost about 4 front teeth. What if those were his "big dog" teeth, what will happen to him now?

Likely at that age they are not his adult teeth -- adult teeth are way hard to knock out as their roots are embedded in their jaw bone so while they can be knocked out, it is highly unlikely chewing on a baby gate would do it and it is very likely that chewing on a baby gate would dislodge his baby teeth When he is a little older, the adult teeth should start coming in -- you will notice the present teeth will start looking 'sparce' - like there is a lot of space between them as the jaw (and puppy) grows and the teeth just aren't adequate -- they will continue falling out, even the molars, and he will grow in larger, stronger adult teeth. Watch to make sure that none of the sharp little baby teeth are retained as they can make the adult teeth grow in crooked. This often will happen in the smaller breeds and makes it to where they need to have them removed by the vet - so it is actually a good thing that he is helping remove his baby teeth
