Dog Veterinarian: Dr Scott Nimmo, Dog Veterinarian replied 7 months ago

Hello again,

I have worked out an answer for you below.

1. Sorry, this just goes with age I am afraid, loose front teeth { or indeed any teeth } is something you commonly see in older dogs. Not much can be done about it I am afraid other than extractions.

2. As long as your dog is not in pain and is enjoying life then in a dog of 14 years of age I would probably advise just to leave as is. But in any case I should be available online for you the next four or five hours today so please do not hesitate to get straight back to me if you would like to talk things over with me further.

Regards,

Dr Scott
Please be kind enough to rate my service to you after we have concluded our dialogue. Such feedback helps me maintain the quality of my answers.
