Glad he is enjoying the carrots! We gave ours 2 per day. Maybe 3 but you don't want a gut upset. They can only digest vegetables if they are pureed, so you'll see them in is stool.

Pork has to be frozen for a week before you can give it to a dog, but personally I would NOT give pork bones. They are too small and pointed. Stick with the knuckle/shank bones that are much bigger than his mouth.

doggiedad all of this. aftering washing my hands really good i would put
them in a bowl of ice water. then i would massage his gums.
back in the ice water then massage. sometimes i would put
ice cubes in a freezer bag ten take a hammer and smash it
and give him some.

Kat Tastic I've seen the puppy kongs, they just seem small compared to his mouth. We will go take a look at the pet store tomotrow.

So far he has really enjoyed frozen apple slices. His vet appointment today said he was cutting a lot of his adult teeth. Typically, how do you know when they are having teething discomfort?

qbchottu I only use the black kong for aggressive adult chewers
For pups and normal adult chewers, I use size appropriate red kongs.
For baby pups, there is a light pink and light blue version.

What about frozen apple slices?
The black ones are the toughest and therefore the most incompressible. You want to start with a different color at first something he can have more of an effect on. It will encourage him if he can press down on it and if the food slides out as he does it, that just encourages him more.

Baillif I used to grind up a mix of kibble and some peanut butter or canned pumpkin and put it into kong toys and then freeze them.

Shade Frozen raw carrots I also found beef tendon was good as it was hard but still chewable, I froze it as well before giving.
