Caring For Your Puppy's Teeth

Advice for your toy and small breed puppy

We’ve put together a puppy teething timeline, along with advice from our puppy experts, so you know what to expect as your puppy takes its first chomps into adulthood …

    Eating …

As your puppy is teething, you may notice they eat less and go off their food because their gums are too sore and tender to chew the food.

Losing teeth!

Between 3-6 months, puppies teeth start to fall out and are replaced with adult teeth. Incisors are usually the first to fall out to make room for the adult teeth moving up behind them.

This process usually continues until they are around 8 months old when they finally develop a full set of adult teeth.

 Top Tip! 

If your puppy decides to nip you whilst playing, stop playing!  Your puppy will soon learn that when they overstep the mark and chew you, their fun play session will end. Show them what they can chew and praise them when they follow your instructions.
