Absolutely normal ... and sometimes it bleeds, too ... so if you see blood, don't panic! Keep a few of her hard rubber chewies in the freezer to keep her comfortable and keep her from gnawing the heck out of your furniture and shoes.
Teething lasts a few months, but the good news is that once that's over with, a lot of the pup's destructive chewing tapers off too.

This is completely normal. She will be teething around the age of 4-5 months. She will lose all of her puppy teeth and get her adult teeth at this time. She will also want to chew all the time and will chew up things she shouldn't if you don't give her plenty of toys and chewies to keep her busy. One thing that is great when they are teething is to take one of the rope toys with the knot in each end, soak it in plain chicken broth, toss it into the freezer to freeze it and then give it to her. Because of the chicken broth, she will love it and because it is frozen it will ease the discomfort of her teething.

Yes, this is totally normal. She will lose all those tiny little teeth, and strong adult teeth will grow in.
During this time, you'll probably notice she just wants to chew, chew, chew. Make sure she has lots of toys to chew on. When my dogs were puppies, they quite liked to get their chompers on ice cubes every now and then to soothe the discomfort.Source(s): Life, vet tech, shelter volunteer

Yes. Usually they lose their puppy teeth around 5-6 months old and grow adult teeth.

Puppies loose their baby teeth, and this is what is happening to your puppy so she will be getting her adult teeth soon. That is why it is important to not pull really hard when you are playing with your puppy/dog when they have something in their mouth. They can loose teeth like a human can and be injured.

She will be losing teeth for the next few months. Make sure to give her plenty of raw meaty bones to help keep those new teeth clean. The meat will massage those sore gums too.

All puppies loose their baby teeth around that age.

Yes. I have two dogs and they both lost their baby (puppy) teeth. Don't worry.

yes they do. And if you catch her drooling like that as an adult it could be an infected tooth. My cat had one the other day. It had to be pulled.

Yep, they do...just like humans - right now she's got puupy teeth...she'll have all her adult teeth at about 1 year...
