Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

PostSubject: Teething and (not) eating   Fri Jun 08, 2018 11:09 am

Hi all,

Puppies (They're getting so big, "puppy" almost doesn't apply anymore. jocolor ) are losing their baby teeth.  Noticed Mika doesn't seem to want to eat.  She does finish her food, but doesn't really seem all that eager to do it.

Wondered if it could be from not having a full mouth of teeth.  Must be rough have "summer teeth" (some-are here... some-are there  lol! ) Or it could be from the Chicken and Pea food we got them.  I like peas now, but when I was a kid.... Mad

We started adding some warm water to soften it which seems to have helped.

When pups are teething they tend to have a little tummy upset and tender mouth, so it's natural for them to have a low apatite or be a little less enthused about food. As long as she is eating that is the main thing. If she has a rope she likes to fetch or chew on you can wet it down and throw it in the freezer. Chewing on frozen things like that can help with any mouth pain she might be having.

Thanks Jenn. Forgot all about cold things when they are teething. We did that with Ginger, our Aussie.

Figure I'd update this as things change so people who might search for this topic will see it.

Max's teeth are at the same point now so both of them are having issues eating their hard kibble.

Along with Jenn's suggestions, we tried adding water to their food, but it mostly turns to mush. We bought some canned food and they have no issues. I mix a little kibble in with their food and all is well.

Another couple weeks and they should be back to their old selves. Smile

I'm glad your pups are getting through teething okay. I have one teething now, that explains the eleven frozen ropes in my freezer and the one the puppy is chewing on at the moment. LOL

Looks like things are almost back to normal. Max lost the final upper baby tooth a few days ago. This morning, both of them were eating like they used to. Almost a full set of chompers on both them. Smile Another week or so and they should have all their pearly whites.
