Veterinary questions? Ask a Vet for Answers ASAP
Hi, Welcome to Just Answer. I'm Chris, a small animal Vet based in the UK. I am reviewing your question and will get back to you as soon as possible
I'm sorry to hear this. Have you been able to look inside her mouth to see if there are any areas of redness of the gums, bleeding, discharge or obviously loose teeth?
OK. Well it sounds like she would be best assessed by your vet, they will be able to have a look at her mouth and see what is going on in there. I agree from what you have described that a dental issue is highly likely and some dental work may well be needed (such as extraction of any problem teeth). Your vet can also potentially prescribe some pain relief for her until a dental can be carried it. If she is now struggling to eat or drink then it is important that she gets seen by a vet as soon as possible. Despite the current situation Vets are still seeing sick animals and performing urgent procedures.
I hope that answers your question? Please let me know if you need any further help or advice.
