How to Handle Puppy Teething and Puppies

SHARE     pinterest

Between 3 and 6 months of age, puppies’ teeth loosen and are expelled. During puppy teething, your puppy’s gums will be very sensitive; she may even refuse food. This is normal. Try easing her through this stage by:

  • Mixing her regular dry food with canned food
  • Soaking dry food in water for 10 to 15 minutes to soften it
  • Loosening teeth by feeding crunchy food and biscuits
  • Sticking with her current food, as switching it could cause intestinal upset
  • Provide suitable dog chews that won’t damage her mouth, gums or teeth
