I have noticed Fred grinds her teeth a lot and it just started within the past few days. I checked her mouth last night and I don't notice anything odd, although she's missing a ton of her baby teeth. She might have a very slight overbite though.

is it normal for pups to grind their teeth like this?

Is it the one that turned 4 months old earlier this month? I would venture to say it is the teething. Supply him with some good chew toys.

I have seen mine when teething, working over the chew toy and whining from the soarness of their teething all the while still going to town on the chew toy.

Chew toys help in their teething.............Kinda like we give babies little teethers when they are teething.

yes she turned 4 months on the 6th, so now my babies almost 5 months! :shock:! she has rope bones and stuffed animals and her cuz and an elk antler too. She also chewed up one of the kids wooden blocks and keeps trying to sneak off after them and she has never touched them before.

i also hear people mention to knot up a sock, dio in cold water and freeze it to help them with teething.
