Teething Question

I was wondering how long GSDs normally take to finish teething.

Also, since the teeth take the calcium from the ears, is this the best time to give them the cottage cheese?

Will their ears, if they were standing prior to teething, go back up when they're done?

At what age do they typically begin to teethe?

Frag began teething around 4.5 months. He was done by about 5.5 months. He went through a week or two there where he was spitting out a few teeth a night. He's about 6.5 months now and has all new teefs.

I don't know anything about cottage cheese in regards to ears, but Frags ears were standing before he started teething, and stayed up while he teethed. They haven't been down since about 4 months.

Generally though, if the ears were up, even if they go down for teething, they'll come back up shortly after. If you see the ears up, even if they go back down, they'll eventually go up and stay up is the advice I was given.

I gave Akbar cottege cheese, 2% for a few months and it seemed to help, I also gave him bones though I still do that

Yes they will. If the ears were up prior to the teething, they will go back up

I believe it's 3 months?

Akbar 6 years
