Good morning everyone!
Granger is 4 months old and is starting to teeth (according to the vet). I was wondering what toys, bones, or anything at all helped with the process of your V teething. Thank you!

It's not high tech, but the best things I've found are old bedsheets, towels, and pillow cases tied into a series of knots.
Get an old sheet and cut a 3' square. Fold the square into a triangle and then roll it into t tube. Tie a whole bunch of knots in it, especially a bigger one on the middle, and let him have it.

Watch him as he is chewing on the knots. Savannah swallowed one whole which caused more than a bit of concern until it passed.

Frozen carrots are really great too. I always feel so badly for them when they get that blechy teething breath and you can see little flecks of blood now and then on soft toys. Poor puppers. I like adding an Esther C for teething time bc their pasterns are a little more own at that age than before or after.

We found a toy at Petsmart or Petco called a Chilly Bone. You wet it and freeze it. It is vanilla flavored. Holley loved it. We went through a couple though since she is a powerful chewer. We had many blood covered soft toys in the process. it was scary until we realized it was just her teething.
Ljilly28,
I agree. That breath is bad when they are loosing teeth. The vet said that is how you can tell when one is ready to come out. It is rotting.

Thank you all for your responses/suggestion. I will try every single one of them.
@ljilly28: What do you mean Esther C for their pasterns?

Teething time goes hand in hand( paw in paw, lol) with a little bit more chance of down pasterns( in which the front"wrists" are a little weaker looking and closer to parallel to he ground than we want). It nearly always is slight and self corrects. I think the Esther C mainly makes the humans feel better, but my orthopedic vet is a big believe it helps with OFA hips/ elbows/ and pastern support at teething time :).

Nylabones are what I always leave with copper when crated. You can freez them and not worry about them eating big pieces and choking. :) Like someone lese mentioned Ice cubes are good too.
