Soft food needed while teething?

8 posts in this topic

I would assume that my 3.5 month old Lab is going to start teething within a month or 2, Will she need soft food while teething or will she still be fine with hard food? I guess I dont know how tender their mouth gets. Thanks

I always water mine down, my trainer said that he wolfs his food and with a young throat he could scar it. when I say wolf I mean 2 cups in 30 seconds or less.

It is a very painful time for the pup, whatever you can do to make it a little easier for them.

We softened our English Setter's food for her for a couple weeks. Of course she is a setter and a little soft...

Our Dane had some problems eating while teething. Wetting it down with water helped a ton.

I have a Brit who is currently teething, but I haven't had to water down his food any. One tip I did get he really enjoys though: Plug one end of a kong toy and fill it with water and pop it in the freezer overnight. Then let him chew on it for awhile the next day. The cold kong will sooth his mouth.

Yeah, another great thing that our setter liked was a few ice cubes in an old sock. Tie it off and let them chew on that for a while.

    •   And then what? There's a saying that goes, "Be careful what you wish for. You just might get it."   You have a country of 300 some million individuals and a good number of that all have different ideas how to so call fix this. That's why we are set up as a representative republic and not a democracy.   You seem to be assuming most people will see things your way

    • Look my very own internet stalker making memes about me, such a proud day.

    • I guess the question is when are we going to get pizzed off enough to do something about it? Guess we aren't there yet.
    •   Hi guys ... Everyone was very helpful last year with what line to use ect...   As I was a fairly new Bass fisherman.  Had a great last open water season as did great with Texas rigs with variety of Senko's.  Also started throwing frogs with 50# power pro with 7'6" med Heavy rod ... wow is that fun!!   What brand is every throwing or like?   I'm going to try the Bobby's Perfect Frog this year  by Snag Proof.  I threw the Booya's this last year and that is a rush.  Can't wait for some basin times!!
    •   Yep, had to fix a few of those switches and tell the wife and kids to let the motor stop before pounding it in reverse!!
    • Kind of crude image but here is what I'm looking at.
    • Access is in the middle but I'm not overly concerned with that.  I can seal it up and cut a new one.  I'm thinking about slide channels mounted on the wall with a steel or aluminum frame mounted to the channels that can slide up and down with a electric winch routed through a couple pulleys. 
    •   You and Bearsheet.................blame everyone but yourselves.  All you those grueling hours you 2 spent in Sillytown advocating for Gary "Hillary is great" Johnson.   #victim #noonegetsitbutyou
    • How close is the access hole to the wall? I have a friend that built a large loft in his shed and utilized cammed pulleys and weights to allow him to hinge the stairway from the loft. Basically, with the cammed pulley, it stays down when he pulls it down and stays up when he puts it up... all with little to no effort.
