Hi! You probably don't know me since I haven't been to these boards in MONTHS, but anyway, I have a 8-month lab, so I think I can help. When my puppy, Dugan, lost his teeth, he bled a lot. Once we were playing Tug-O-War with his rope toy, and a tooth popped out! He started bleeding, but it went away in a few minutes. So bleeding is perfectly normal, just like humans bleed when losing baby teeth. The age for losing milk teeth is 4 to 6 months, so your dog is just a little late with losing his baby teeth.

I actually got to keep 4 of Dugan's baby teeth! Two I found lying around the house, and two I picked up right after they fell out. It's really funny, because we were all slobbering over him, and cooing to him, and telling him that we were so sorry he was bleeding, and he was just chewing on a bone as if nothing had happened!
