Chewing / Chewing in Dogs and Cats

Herbal remedies to help reduce anxiety in puppies and kittens and to help stop biting and excessive chewing. 

Natura Petz supplements to help stop excessive chewing in puppies and kittens

Animals routinely experience irregularities in bodily systems, including pain and anxiety related to teething, which affects the Central and Autonomic Nervous systems. Teething may require a nutritional correction to restore emotional balance, to promote relaxation, to balance mood and to help  provide feelings of comfort and security.

Just as babies explore by putting things in their mouths, puppies and kittens investigate their surroundings by chewing. Teething in pets occurs when the first teeth start emerging through the gums. And just like babies, your pet will lose baby teeth until their adult teeth mature. Teething can cause pain and discomfort. As a pet parent, you may be frustrated as your puppy or kitten tries to chew and bite everything in site.  Teeth are normally fully developed around two months, however, your pet's chewing tendencies may last up to six months of age. The easiest solution is to provide your dog and cat with plenty of healthy toys as well as treats that allow them to chew throughout the day.

Other reasons your pet may display teething tendencies: 

Hunger (raiding the garbage)

Play (gnawing a book or the sofa)

Natural urge to chew (for gum and teeth health)

Attention (negative or positive)

Anxiety response (separation anxiety)

Confinement (anxiety may cause a pet to try to gnaw or dig to escape)

There are a number of options you can choose to help relieve teething in puppies and kittens:

Provide plenty of chew toys to help encourage chewing and to reduce the pain associated with teething

Ensure that hazardous items such as household detergents, electrical cords, devices and wiring are out of reach

Apply frozen or wet clean cloths to gums to help reduce swelling and pain 

Massage your puppy or kitten’s jaw and mouth to ease discomfort

Don't scold your puppy or kitten when harshly if they have chewed the wrong thing. Say "No!" firmly and replace the item with a chew friendly toy and then praise your pet. Remember they are just learning!
