    Tie a knot in an old tea towel or something similar then wet it and freeze it, our mastiff used to gnaw on that like a good un when she was teething.

    Hi Lyndon,
    My Ovcharka puppy lost two teeth this week. And off His food a bit too. We have been liquidising some of His food to help Him get it down, but in the same boat as you. He's been bouncy today but last few days very quiet. Don't know if there's any liquid could be rubbed on the gums how we Humans have?
