    Question Puppy Teething

    I hope all experienced dog owners will not laugh at this although it is a question I think I could only ask in a forum such as this...so here goes

    Can you give a puppy who is teethng something like a dog versianof Bonjela or SM33 or such for thier gums whilst teething. It just pains me to see how aggressive she gets sometimes from her obvious frustration in teething. This would only to be used at night to let her sleep a little more.

    I do realise all puppies have to go through this as do humans but all the bones and teething paraphernalia you can by I have (trust me).

    Any constructive help for a new puppy owne would be appreciated.

    Hello,

    I used this finger gum massager which come with tooth brush a few times for my mini sch. I must admit i did not use tooth paste but use very small amount vegemite instead (a little bit of salt can't be too bad for the gum. can it?). My dog did not seem minding too much. What can I say he does not have off switch for food.

    thanks you for that i will look into getting something like that on the weekend...Vegimite well thats a first I may give that a miss considering I have a very white Japanese Spitz so vegimite may be a more of a mess than the chewed up items around the house.. thank you once again.

    Bonjella is used for nerve pain in humans, its different to what pups go through.
    You can buy teething toys from a pet shop, freeze strawberries, watermelon, apples etc. for her to chew on. She might also like to bite into some ice cubes or frozen bones to chew on will help relieve the pain.

    From what my vet told me...doggy teeth doesn't take as long to erupt as human teeth, because dogs depend on their teeth to survive. Yes, they might feel pain, but it is not a long term thing. Some good chew toys help saving your hands, furniture etc from little teething puppy teeth

    are you sure she's not just chewing because puppies chew... Fonz is the mouthiest puppy I've ever had, he always has something in his mouth, his fav thing to chew is skin... I've taught him some bite inhibition and he will sit and chew on my hand for hours if I let him...(it doesnt hurt he's very gentle now)...

    yep i think after a few weeks now i have come to the realisation that she is just a puppy that likes to chew on things...including my satin quilt cover oh well......I am now buying her the pigs ears to chew on and that takes her days to get through so I think we have a winner...thanks to all for your help

    Venison ears are also good. They come from NZ and have hardly any fat.
    Check that the pigs ears don't come from China.
