• I have a six-month-old puppy and I found what looks to be a tooth. She is still energetic and I don't see any bleeding or eating changes. Is it normal for her to lose her teeth?

    It is normal for a puppy to lose teeth at 6 months of age. The teething starts at about 4 months of age and ends around 6 months of age. You may or may not find teeth as they lose them as it usually happens when they are chewing. If she is eating and drinking normally and there is no blood than it is likely not anything to worry about.
