So Leica is now 16 weeks old, I noticed she is slightly off her food which is unusual, she's raw fed and loves every mouthful and more usually! Anyway she is eating but leaving a little in the bowl. Had a peak inside her mouth and noticed she only has one of the little front peg teeth left!

 

Is it usual for them to go off their food a little when teething? And how long until the bigger teeth will poke through?

 

Can't say I'll miss the little needle teeth but she is growing too fast :((

Hi , her wee gums maybe bit sore ... Do you buy minced raw food or is it on the bone ? Could you buy the minced soft stuff for a week or two ,? The wee pincers are gone !! I kept some of Mina's !! Xx

Ironically its gebnerally mince or chunks she's leaving and still happily munching through duck necks and chicken parts! Her appetite does seem a bit better today though :)

 

Haven't actually found any teeth lyind around yet but I'll be keeping a look out, thanks for replying :)

Ahhhh... that tells me that her gums are sore and the gnawing comforts her.. poor sweetie.. Between the teething, the cropping and the constant "NO!!" these pups go through a lot in their first couple of months... No wonder they are so stoic....

Teething.. Ooooh how I don't miss it.. Haha.

Max used to bring me his teeth. It was kind of odd. He would be sitting and chewing on something, then stop, get up, and come to me; and drop a tooth (or 3 at once). I was shocked the first time he dropped a tooth on my foot, but after the 6th time in one day, I was used to it. He lost his fast, and has been great since!

The thing I was lost on is how he chipped his two fornt teeth.. Maybe Santa will bring him new ones.. Ha

Aww how cute! She's lost some off the bottom now too but I can see little white bumps coming through on top!

 

Not noticed any lying about and she hasn't given me any :( I think she must be swallowing them!
