Teething Puppies

We have had a lot of new puppy parents coming around lately and they all have the same problem. Their new buddies is chewing up everything in sight.

Just like Human babies, puppy's mouths hurt when those new teeth come in and they are just looking for a way to relieve the pain. I have two solutions for you:

1. If you haven't already purchased one get a Kong toy for puppies.

Now fill it with peanut butter and freeze it solid. The Kong is a very tough toy designed for heavy chewing... I've had mine for about 8 years now and it's been through 2 dogs. The peanut butter helps keep them interested in chewing on the Kong and the cold soothes your puppies sore gums.

2. A second option is to take a clean washcloth and get it damp. Then tie a knot in the middle and freeze. It will serve the same purpose as the Kong in numbing puppies sore gums and the texture of the washcloth will massage them.
