Hi,

My name is***** and in sorry to hear your puppy injured her mouth. Can you wiggle her teeth? Are any loose? Also can you gently open and close her mouth to see which teeth are tapping each other?

Dogs frequently get toys and sticks stuck on the roof of their mouths when playing. Usually this causes no damage, but in a young dog, whose teeth are softer one could have broken loose.

For tonight, since she already ate, I wouldn't feed any more, but continue to have water available.

Seeing your vet in the morning is a good idea.

Good luck to you and your puppy,

Best regards,

Dr Amanda

After about an hour and saying a prayer over the puppy the problem resolved itself! We thank God and you for your help!
