Thread: is this normal at all?

    Default is this normal at all?

    Hi everyone. Winston decided to snag Triggers new nylabone - which is HUGE. Since we rescued Winston months ago he has NEVER played with, or chewed anything. however, after only moments of chewing there was a lot of blood all over it. we immediately got it away from him and I pried his big mouth open to look at his teeth, gums, tongue etc. Well I certainly wasn't ready for one thing I found. .... he has teeth growing out of the roof of his mouth, middle of palate, and more random teeth inside the "normal" rows of teeth. .... is this normal? ... as for the blood, his gums are really inflamed around a couple teeth but we will be monitoring closely.

    The extra teeth are normal. Both Blue and Wellie have them too.

    The bleeding, well that's why I don't allow Nylabones anymore. After awhile, the edges get sharp and Blue would always cut his gums on them.
    I know some here file them down until they're smooth again though. I'm too lazy and just don't buy them anymore.

    I agree with Ellie, the extra teeth are normal, my guys have them too. And we also don't give our guys anything other than Kong toys because they chew and swallow everything. I've been thinking about getting them some Deer Antlers, I've heard good things about them, and my guys like to chew. The blood could have been from the nylabones scratching the tissues, or it could be from the inflamed gums.

    Some do have extra teeth as others have said. The Nylabones will cause bleeding if the edges get to sharp. I will Dremel them down when they get like that.

    Vegas has extra teeth. One being right in the middle of the roof of his mouth I showed the vet years ago. Nothing to worry about.

    Thanks everyone. As of yet Trigger has been fine with the nylabones and no extra teeth. Just really crooked front bottom ones. Those of you familiar with Winstons story will understand me when I say I shouldn't be surprised. I have heard of extra teeth but out of the palate? ?? Weird! ! Little icky haha. We did get him an antler and he is doing really well with it. Such a big step with him, he's actually PLAYING now! !! No nylabones for him tho, and I will watch trigger closely with his. Thanks @2BullyMama, @KMARINO @dolphin @Davidh @Vikinggirl @Blueberrys Mom and land sharks is totally accurate!

    No more nylabones. The boys chew off pieces and we threw them away. Kong's and Elk Antlers period. It killed me to pay $45.00 per antler but they have to chew something other than my shoes, tables or door trim. Ralphie
