Darius lost six of his teeth all at once!!

As the title says...... My 13 week old puppy just lost almost all his bottom teeth at once! 3 on each side, I gave him a beef marrow bone today for the first time trying to keep him occupied and stop him from continuing to go outside and search out cat poo!
So is this normal? I don't think it will be able to get a picture of his mouth but it is all gummy! How long will it take for him to grow these back? Do I need to soften his food or anything?

Okay I got a picture sort of!


This is the left side and you can see there are 3 missing on the bottom and 2 from the top. The other side is the same.

I don't know if that is normal. I thought puppies usually lost teeth between 4 and 6 months. My puppy is 18 weeks and hasn't lost any of those back teeth. She has some front teeth coming in, though.

His front teeth are already adult teeth. He lost all his canines within a week of me getting him and they have grown in very nicely. I was told he was born November 30 2013 SNAP! That makes him 15 weeks now! I guess I keep forgetting that I got him as a 3 week old and I have had him 2 weeks now!!
Regardless........ when his front teeth came out, there were teeth coming in to fill the space, it doesn't seem like there are teeth in those holes!

I would say he is probably a little older than you were told. My 15 week old has only lost two front teeth and from the picture your pup appears to have his adult teeth in the front. I would guess your off about four week on his age. You should see his adult teeth coming up through the gums.
I would soften his food up with warm water and some soft food for about a week or two till he gets his adult teeth in.

Well he doesn't seem any worse for the wear so to speak! He is eating and playing and causing chaos like a normal puppy so I guess its not that bad! I just hope it doesn't take forever for them to grow back!

My pup lost seven in two days and looked like that but he was a little older, about 21 weeks. But the adults grew in within a week. I didn't soften his food.

Baby teeth start falling out around week 14. I would suggest your pup is a bit older than you were told.
