My yorkie is almost 6 months old. I looked into her mouth last night and discovered two rows of front teeth. The second set are just coming in but all poking through the skin. Is this a problem or normal? Will the second set push out the first set? Any help/advise is greatly appreciated.

Wait to see if they come out, if not they need to be removed because retained baby teeth can cause infection. If she isn't spayed yet then they can be removed when she is.

I would ask your vet. I have heard of yorkies having a second row of teeth before and I believe they will need to be removed if they dont fall on out so you may want to ask your vet about it to get a definite good answer!

Two rows of teeth is very common when pups are teething. Most of the time they fall out on their own by the time the pup is 9 months old. Sometimes the baby canine teeth will stay longer and sometimes they do need to be pulled. Giving your pup something to chew on will help loosen the baby teeth and help them to fall out. I give my pups cow ears and a hooves to chew on.

Baby teeth didn't fall out...
My Gizmo is 6 months old and is at the vet's today getting some teeth removed. He was at the vet's office just 6 weeks ago to be neutered and his teeth looked fine. According to our laws here, dogs need to be neutered and registered by 4 months of age so I couldn't wait like I was hoping to. He has some baby teeth that didn't fall out and as a result, had some bad plaque buildup. I get to pick him up shortly poor lil guy :c(
