I have an eight and a half month old Cardigan male who has begun pawing at the sides of his face and mouth recently. I don't know if it is cause for concern, but I am hoping some knowledgeable person on these forums will be able to help. It is possible that he is still experiencing pain from teething at his age? His adult teeth appear to be all the way in. Most of the time he will put his nose to the ground and run the pads of his paws aggressively down the sides of it. But I have seen him get a nail hooked inside his lip like he is trying to get at his gums. Any help would be appreciated, thanks.
