You just want to make sure food does not stay trapped between the baby tooth, and the permanent teeth.
Trapped food can lead to decay. And the decay of one tooth, can lead to decay in another tooth touching that decaying tooth.
I wouldn't wait a few months, as you want the permanent teeth to move into place. But if its not changing the alignment of the permanent teeth, giving it another 6 weeks to work it free, is not going to hurt anything.
Did you vet mention if he was going to do a light sedation, or a heavier sedation to remove the tooth? Only asking , because I'm wondering just how deep the roots go on a puppy tooth. Plus has any of the root already dissolved, or not. I would be tempted to have it xrayed to see. If it could be done without sedation. A added cost, but would give you a better idea on if it would need to be pulled, or if it would work free with chewing.
June's last 2 sedations were lighter, she was up/ alert and ready to come home right afterward, or within a hour.
For for other surgeries, its a heavier sedation . Vets have to monitor them for longer.
Lucy's last 3 surgeries, a anesthesiologist was who administered the drugs, and monitored all vitals during the surgery and recovery. She was in a fragile state, and its not the norm for all surgeries.
Not all those who wander are lost.
Life is just a leap of faith.
Spread your arms and hold your breath and always trust your cape.
Two things define you. Your patience when you have nothing, and your attitude when you have everything.
