If your dog is in this condition, especially with "white" gums...then this is a true medical emergency which requires immediate veterinary attention. White gums are a sing of poor blood perfusion, usually due either to severe anemia or internal bleeding
. Your dog needs to go to an emergency room right away.
If finances are of concern in this case, there are many organizations that exist to help with this. I am listing some of them here for you to contact and see how they might assist you.
