When does teething start?

I was just wondering when teething starts?

Is it as bad for puppies as it is for babies?

How long does it take?

Uhh, all I can provide is what we went through with Murphy.

It generally starts around 4 months, Murph's started at 3 and a half.

In my opinion, he didn't even notice he was losing teeth. We'd be playing tug and all of a sudden you'd hear a tiny click, look over and see a tooth! Sometimes it was the big ones, sometimes it was the tiny ones.

The only one that bothered him was his canine (aka shark to us humans) tooth. It was totally bent to the side and was uncomfortable. I played tug with him to try to pull it out (as I was not going to do it myself) and then a different one popped out! That one came out 15 minutes later.

Sometimes he loses 2 or 3 in a day, and then I won't find them for a week - though he also swallows a lot of them. It generally lasts 2 months. I have a terribly cute picture of a shark toothed dobe pup who's missing his one front canine. So cute...

He has whined a lot in the last couple of days for new reason... when he is just hanging out, not really crying, but just a little sad whine every now and then... didnt know if it was possibly because of teething. He is 16 weeks now, so I am sure it is coming lol.

No lost teeth yet though...

All mine have started at 3 months. Try looking at his incisors, I bet they are being replaced by bigger ones with no spaces between them.

Here is a picture of Parker, with his new two front teeth, during teething. He is about 3 1/2 months of age in the picture and has lost most of his incisors. The incisors are the first to go. And, no, it doesn't usually bother them, except they need something to chew besides table legs, coffee tables, etc.



It can take several months. They will finish teething around 5 thru 7 months of age. This can be different with different puppies.

My boy had a full mouth at 5 months, I guess it depends on the dog.. and I don't think it bothers them like it does human babies, but they definitely need things to chew.. frozen things to chew are a bonus!

I bought him a water bone, you fill it with water and then throw it in the freezer... he seems cool with it. But what he REALLY loves, is plain old ice cubes lol.

It does not look like any are missing yet...

he whined once or twice while he was teething but ice cubes were the best chew toys ever during that time. still are. i'm glad we don't have a front-dispensing fridge, we'd be in BIG TROUBLE if we did.

At 4 months Riley started losing his front teeth. He's extremely good about not chewing on furniture or anything he's not supposed to... but he would rip his bedding to shreds and started to nip at me a lot more when he was teething. I gave him ice cubes and always provided various things to chew on. He liked stuffies, though they had to be replaced so often, lol... at 5 months most of his teeth were already "in", but they grew the past month.

Would say he's pretty much done now, just after 6 months.

I noticed now that there is a couple front teeth missing, so I think it is safe to say, we are officially teething.

Brooklyn started around 3.5 months and finished around 5.5. The only differences I noticed were sometimes she got hell bent on biting me, a bad mood occasionally, and when it was bad she got blood on some toys. About it.

The majority of my puppies started teething (lost a tooth) at around 4 months. Some a little earlier and some a little later than that and the period of time it took from the first tooth to the last was approximately two months. I started showing all of them as 6 to 9 puppies and they all had adult teeth by that time.

Generally puppies will lose the upper and lower incisors first (the ones between the canines). Then they lose the premolars (the ones behind the canines and in front of the very back teeth which are molars). Once they lose the molars they finally lose the canines. An occasional dog with deviate from the pattern but commonly that's the sequence.

And don't ever think they are through chewing because all the adult teeth are in--there follows for anywhere from a couple of months to as long as a year a process called setting the teeth--the puppies will chew, avidly, on everything--the deck, the furniture, the corners of the house, sticks, woodwork etc and they are literally setting those new teeth into the boney structure of the jaw.

Most puppies do more chewing AFTER they have their adult set of teeth than they did while they were teething.

Couldn't even tell you if it's worse for puppies than kids--I don't remember and I've been around kids who didn't seem to do much more that grow another tooth without any problems and some who ran fevers, cried incesantly and did seem to have a hard time.

I had one puppy who lost his first tooth at four months and two days and who lost the last canine incisor at 5 months and 4 days. He lost teeth in batches--all of his upper incisors in one day--he ran a temperature for 18 hours, didn't want to eat and slept all the time--30 hours after the first tooth he had a whole new set of upper incisors. He did the same thing with the lower incisors. When he started losing premolars he lost all of the upper AND lower premolars in about 24 hours and went through the elevated temperature, no eating and sleeping deal for almost 48 hours and you could see the tops of all of the premolars at that point and he was back to normal. He's the only puppy I've ever had that lost teeth like that--I think his mouth was a lot sorer just because he lost so many teeth at the same time but he got it all over with in a big hurry.

He looked a lot like a a dog wearing dentures that were a whole lot too big for him for a couple of months.

When does teething start?

My girl just turned 15 weeks and she hasn't lost any yet. Hoping they start coming out soon.

Edit to the post above Kiyan lost her first tooth last night and it appears that some others are about to fall out too! I am now officially on tooth duty.

My girl gets whole ice cubes. I watch her eat it to be careful. I will be buying baby carrots this upcoming grocery visit and do the same thing.

Mariano got whole ice cubes with treats in them... never had a single issue, and he acted like I was handing him a grammy every single time.

We give Kimber full sized frozen carrots. She's 18 weeks old now, and still hasn't lost any of her baby teeth.
