Teething in Puppies and Kittens

Teething in Puppies and Kittens

Herbal remedies to help prevent chewing problems and to help soothe painful gums and teeth for 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. Herbal supplements can also provide significant pain relief for a puppy or kitten while teething.

Teething in pets occurs when the first teeth start developing through the gums. Just like babies, your pet will lose baby teeth until their adult teeth mature and 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 sight.

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: 



Natural urge to chew to protect gum and teeth health

Attention, negative or positive


Separation anxiety



Un-diagnosed illness

Helpful solutions to get your puppy and kitten through teething stages: 

Have safe chew toys around the house and outside to help encourage chewing and to reduce the pain associated with teething

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

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

Provide natural supplements that ease teeth and gum pain and related teething pain 

Be patient. Don't scold your puppy or kitten harshly if they have chewed the wrong thing. They are just learning and remember how scary it is to be young and in a new situation.
