• My kitten is nearly 6 months old and is getting his adult canines on top, but has not lost his baby canines. So he has 4 fangs on top. Is this cause for concern?

    This can be a concern if he doesn't lose his baby canines. I recommend that you continue to watch him. If he does not lose the baby canines by 7 months or if the adult canines are fully present with the babies, then I would recommend taking him to your vet.
