It is totally normal. Puppies lose their teeth around this time. You may find some - the rest will probably be swallowed or lost. It won't take long before you start seeing her new teeth.

It may be that she's off her food because her gums are a bit sore. I pampered my pup with softer food during this time. Keep the teeth you find because you'll be amazed at how HUGE her new teeth will seem!

Yes! This is exactly when they get their new teeth and loose the baby teeth.

I have found four in not even a week. Is that a lot in a short period?

Also she is doing a lot of chewing when she has nothing in her mouth so im guessing she has at least one that's loose. It seems to be annoying her is there anything I can do

That sounds normal still! You can check her mouth and see if the new teeth are coming in, and you can look for loose teeth too.
