Top Tips For Puppy Teething Relief

Jul 10, 2008
Every puppy will go through a teething stage. Learning some simple puppy teething relief techniques can make this painful time easier on both your puppy and you.

What most people do not realize is that puppies have two teething periods in their lives. The first period comes at about three weeks old when their baby teeth come in. This is what most owners do not realize is happening. Puppies typically do not experience the same pain in period one as they do in the period two. Period two is when their adult teeth come in. This is when the puppies discomfort is realized.

While the first period of teething happens at around three weeks the second period happens at around six months. This is when the adult teeth start coming in. The first to come in are the canines, second are the incisors and last are the pre-molars. This is the period that is most problematic to puppies and the time when the most care should be taken to make your puppy more comfortable.

In order to save your shoes and furniture from the gnawing behaviors of your teething puppy, this is when you should seek puppy teething relief! This will also alleviate some of his pain, as well.

The chewing of anything by your puppy is a sign of discomfort. Many people will consider this normal, however, it is a sure sign of teething

Your puppy may be chewing your new shoes. Unfortunately, chewing comes naturally to your pet and you wont be able to stop it. But your veterinarian can supply a medication in gel-form that can make your dog feel better, and perhaps lessen his urge to chew. Chew toys are a good alternative; get your pet accustomed to them. Perhaps your puppy will find one he prefers over objects in your home

One thing that will feel good on your puppy's gums is the cold. So try freezing some of his chew toys overnight and offering them to him in the morning. This will hopefully lessen both the swelling and the discomfort in the gum area. It's best to have a large selection of dog toys and always rotate them through the freezer so there is always a cold one ready and waiting for your puppy.

A puppy will use your shoes to help get it through its teething period. This is not a pleasant time for your puppy which thankfully does not last all that long. Providing a little bit of puppy teething relief at this stage will help ease the discomfort and may just save your favorite pair of shoes.
