Hi there, you are through to Dr Linda.
I'm sorry to hear this happened, it must have been concerning.
This indicates serious periodontal disease and I would want Baby's mouth checked by a vet for any further dental disease, abscesses or ulcers.
They may well benefit from a dental cleaning and medicine such as antibiotics and pain relief.
While most of the time this is a result of dental disease, other possibilities would include trauma and tumours so a general check would be sensible.
