Hello

My puppy Jun is 5 months and yesterday I noticed that he lost a tooth while having his dinner (probably swallowed the toother) and I see some blood in his mouth. I believe this is normal considering us human would have a bit of blood when we lose our baby teeth. Is there anything I should give him to stop the bleeding or make him feel better?

And would he eat less during this period of time?

Thanks!

Sounds normal. My last two pups (raw weaned) struggled to eat bones and large pieces of meat when they were teething, they had to have minces for a few weeks.
Just make sure he has plenty of things to chew, a flannel (washcloth) soaked in water and frozen can be soothing to chew for sore gums

Seems normal for the little bit of blood, ive got teething puppies at the moment too.
I just make sure there is always a chew toy available for them and when I notice they are irritated I give them a slice of frozen apple :)
