My Labrador Retriever Puppy is Teething

Subject: My Labrador Retriever Puppy is Teething... what can I do?

From: Reese (AKA - Theresa) (USA)

Labrador Retriever Name: Nori

Reader's E-mail / Comment - Reese Writes:

My 4 month old male Labrador Retriever puppy is teething and looks very uncomfortable. Would it be safe to rub some Orajel on his gums? I feel so bad for him and want to know what I can do to help. Thanks... Reese

All About Labradors Answer:

Hello Reese and thank you for visiting the All About Labradors blog.

Using a small amount of Orajel directly applied to the area where Nori's teeth are bother him won't hurt but I would try other remedies before I used it.

What I would recommend is to give Nori things to chew on to help massage his gums and help his teeth break through. There are plenty of chew toys available on the market which will help to soothe Nori's gums and help him feel better.

Chilly Bone is a soft, freezable, canvas dog toy that will help to stimulate your dog's teeth and gums. Nylabone makes plenty of flexible puppy teething bones to help ease the pain of teething. Our favorite maker of dog toy products, Kong (Goodie Bone Toys, Puppy Teething Stick Dog Toy) are designed to exercise growing jaws and assist the teething process in puppies.

Ice cubes - right there in your home freezer, sure to provide entertainment as well as relief for Nori.

Nori's teething problems will pass quickly. By the time he is seven to eight months old, he should have a full set of adult teeth.

Hope this helps!
