Although your puppy's teeth will naturally fall out to make room for their adult teeth, wobbly teeth in adult dogs is cause for concern.
Dogs with sore mouths often eat on one side of their face, eat less or, if the pain is severe, they may stop eating completely.
Dogs are very curious and eat some extremely strange things. Unfortunately, some of these items get lodged in their guts and cause a blockage.
Unfortunately (for us!), many dogs enjoy the taste of poo, and eating it (coprophagia) is a very normal dog behaviour. Contrary to popular belief, if your dog eats poo, it’s unlikely to be because of a health problem or something missing from their diet.
Curious dogs can get their paws on all sorts of things - food, bones, rubber toys, stones. Here's what to do if you think your dog has eaten something that might be harmful.
