How Many Teeth Does a Dog Have?

Answer

Most adult dogs have 42 teeth, but this number can vary depending on the breed of the dog. Dogs grow teeth much like humans, with puppies having a set of primary teeth that they will lose when they are around four months old. The adult teeth come in to replace them. Adult dogs grow their molars last, at around six or seven months of age. Dog owners should take care of their dogs' teeth by brushing routinely.
