Our 4 year old pug, Mylo, seems to be losing his adult teeth! He's already lost 2 of his bottom teeth and two more are loose, it seems to only be his bottom teeth so far. It doesn't seem to be causing him any pain, we hope not anyways but he's been chewing all his denta bones and raw hides fine and when we touch his teeth, he doesn't react like he's in pain. Has anyone's pug had this problem? I do have to admit that we've been very bad and have not been brushing his teeth like we should be on a daily basis.

Mylo eats dry dog food so he hardly eats any soft foods if any. And ever since Mylo was a pup, he barely chews his food and just swallows it whole but we never thought anything of it.

Have you had Mylo in for a dental check up with the vet? Its possible there could be some gum disease going on if not it sure isnt normal to lose that many teeth at such a young age

Wow, Nia... That's very odd. Last summer Laura/sapphirepanther posted about her 4 year old pug's teeth breaking and also falling out.

Do you know if baby teeth were crowding his mouth? If so, maybe something has finally had to give in his mouth. Please let us know what the vet says... Four years old is very young for teeth to fall out, I think.

I have a pug who comes from the same breeder as Mylo. She is five and has also lost some teeth. Both of her upper canines are gone. I wonder if it is a genetic problem?

If they're from the same breeder, then that would be a strong suspicion with me (that it's a genetic component). How closely related are your pugs?
