Puppie teeth sometimes come in at about five months of age.

Your new puppy not eating?
Some, not all…but definitely more often than not, ShihTzu Puppies don’t get a full set of front teeth till they are five months old…especially Shih Tzu that are on the smaller side.

I’ve often gotten that call that my pup has lost interest in his food. Don’t blame the food! The poor babies gums are probably feeling bruised gums from trying to crunch those kernels.

Moisten the dry kernels with hot tap water and stir into the dry kernels till you have a tiny bit of “gravy” going on then let it sit till the kernel seems spongy.
