New Whimzees puppy dental treats, oral care for puppies as of 3 months. Puppies are born with no teeth. The first signs of their 28 temporary or baby teeth appear as early as 4 weeks old. These sharp milk teeth don’t hang around too long and fall out between 14 and 30 weeks when they are replaced by adult ones. At 7 to 8 months old your pup will have a full set of 42 adult teeth.
Some facts about puppy teeth and how Whimzees can help:
Importance of Dental Care
Just like humans, developing good dental hygiene for your pup from the start is essential to help them avoid developing canine dental disease. This is the number one health issue affecting dogs in the UK later in life.
Left untreated, periodontal disease can lead to severe oral pain, loss of teeth and even systemic complications throughout the body.
The good news however is that proper dental care, especially when started early, can prevent periodontal disease.

Veterinarian Dr Danielle Bernal’s Top Tips for a Good Puppy Dental Care Routine using Whimzees
- Get to know their teeth
Teach your new pup that it is ok for people to handle their mouth and muzzle. It’s not only key for you to be able to check their teeth, but also goes a long way to helping them tolerate future dental care and prevention.
- Start to brush
When it comes to brushing, best results come from regular daily brushing. You can start with a finger brush or toothbrush but make sure you only use specially formulated dog toothpaste. To get them used to having your fingers and a brush in their mouth, try rubbing their gums and teeth as soon as you bring them home.
- Chew on the right things
Giving your pup the right thing to chew on during this time is key. Something too hard could cause tooth fracture and something they find could be swallowed and cause an intestinal blockage. Feeding a dental chew that is specifically designed for a puppy will help not only keep them busy and alleviate teething discomfort, but also aid their dental health
- Feed a Whimzees Puppy Dental Treat daily
Especially designed for puppies, these stick shaped dental treats are easy to hold between their paws. They prevent plaque and tartar build-up, plus contain added calcium to support your pup’s growing bones. Give one daily for a good clean and fresh breath.
