Our little girl Zoey started to lose her teeth over the weekend. We found a couple and experienced some bloody gums, all normal I know. I am wondering how long does this whole process take and when will I know all her adult teeth have come in? We have given her a "chilly bone" which she really likes, any other suggestions on how to ease her through this stage?

Hank's favorite... frozen wash cloths. I take old wash cloths, knot them, wet and freeze. I keep a few in a ziplock bag in the freezer.

It takes a couple of weeks if I remember correctly. I agree about the wet frozen washcloths and also used to freeze carrots. But make sure you put a towel down under them because it can become messy.

Thank you for the sugguestions. She loves the wet frozen washcloth!! Did you find that losing teeth/getting new teeth affected your pups eating at all? Zoey doesn't seem to eat with the same vigor as before starting her teeth lose. When encouraged, she will eat, but I was a little concerned.

So far it hasn't changed Hank's gusto for his meals but he just started losing the small front teeth. Just like kids, those molars might give him more trouble.

When Tucker was teething, we added a little warm water to his kibble to moisten it so that it was easier for him to chew. We had a chilly bone, but the frozen washcloths worked much better.
