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.
