    I have a 16 weeks old weimaraner pup, whom I have been giving chew bones for about a week. last night I was looking at her teeth and noticed that some of them were breaking and croocked. Should I stop letting her have them or is it ok> Will it mess up here teeth permanently? any advice will help.:confused:

    She could be teething. They usually start aroung 4 months of age.

    Try putting a wet teeth towel in the freezer, then giving it to her to chew on. Should help numb her mouth.

    Chews shouldnt cause damage to teeth. What kind are you giving? Some arent suitable for puppy teeth.

    Not sure what brand but they are the little green dental chews. Where do I get a teething towel? What is it?:blushing:

    Tea towel, you use to dry your dishes :)

    Doesnt have to be fancy.

    Dental chews tend to be for adult teeth, although some companies do a puppy version. I doubt they would be strong enough to damage teeth, as they are designed to be fully consumed.

    Sounds like she may be teething. If you are worried, pop her along to the vets.
