Is it normal for a teething puppy to have bruised and swollen gums where teeth have fallen out? Please excuse if this is an obvious answer...as some of you know, I am a first time dog owner

Re: Is this normal...?

Oh lord Alexa, I really don't know...It's been so long since I have had a puppy that I can't remember with Buck, but I suppose it's possible...Need to remember these things cos it will come in handy next spring  :)

She seems to have lost her big "fang" teeth (not sure what they are called lol) on the bottom jaw. Around the whole area is quite badly bruised (all the way into the bottom of her mouth) and she keeps licking it and crying when we try and have a look at it...I just want to make sure it is something that is common with teething, and if not find out what is causing it!! Thanks for the replies.  :)

It is common if they are doing alot of chewing while shedding the teeth....The gums swell, bruise and bleed as new ones try to come in...:)

Thanks Sharon, that's what we figured but wanted to be sure because its looking pretty nasty and sore.  She is doing an awful lot of chewing...mostly on toys thankfully and she's losing her teeth very fast!  :)

Thanks Willow, Lisa, Andrea or Mark for moving my post, I wasn't sure where to put it!
