Grinding teeth

Post by MandieD on Fri May 06 2016, 22:54

Dexter is nearly 6 months old and is teething. .. he's lost 3 fangs and a large side tooth.

The last few days he's been grinding his teeth a lot and constantly sticking his tongue out almost like he's trying to push his teeth out... is this normal,  should I be worried Sad

he kept me awake a lot last night, but other than that he is his usual happy self...

any advice/experience welcome xx
