Koda's teeth!! - July 24th 2011, 06:50 PM

Hey guys.

My puppy, Koda, is a 5 month old german shepherd malamute X. He's beautiful and we love him to bits.

When we go camping, which is every weekend and sometimes during the week, we tie him to a rope. He has lots of room on this rope to run around and play and whatever, but he likes to wander into the bush and eat the raspberries, but then he gets "the runs." So we tie him up.

The other day, he had the rope in his mouth, and then he started running. But soon the rope stopped getting longer, and ripped his 2 bottom fang teeth out. Oh boy was he crying when that happened. It's okay because he's not bleeding, nothing is torn, and they will grow back with the rest of his adult teethies, but he's in a lot of pain, I can tell. He won't eat his dog food. I'm home alone with him right now and discovered that when I tried to feed him breakfast...he took a few bites of his kibble and started crying and came right to me and threw his face up at me so I looked and his gums aren't swollen and red or anything but I can see how it would be painful. Thank god we had some wet dog food, because that is softer....so I gave him that and he lapped it up no problem...

How do i help him with pain? I've been giving him ice cubes to nom on (he likes those), and hopefully that is soothing his gums a bit more, but is there anything I can do to help him until his big boy teeth grow in and he can chew again?

If he's in a lot of pain for too much longer, you could always take him to the vet, they might give him a few painkillers if he seriously can't eat anything but wet food.

You might be tempted, or are suggested to give him over the counter pain meds. I don't recommend this, and even then Aspirin is the ONLY somewhat safe med for dogs, he might not really need it and it tends to thin the blood, Not recommended in puppies.

I suppose I'd just keep giving him ice. You can also try heat anywhere else, but I'm not sure how that'd work in a dog's mouth Just keep making sure he is eating, and very hydrated. Water does wonders, it's weird.



Take me seriously.
I dare you.
