My name is***** and I am sorry to hear that Buddy's tongue looks so weird. Could he have cut his tongue on something like a wire or a can? Does he chew on electrical wires?
Can you send a picture of his tongue? This will help determine what is going on with it.
He may have cut it on something (stick, wire, can, etc) and it is now infected, leading to the foul smell. If it does appear infected, he may need antibiotics.
Please, if you can, send a picture so that I can see what is going on.
How is your dog's tongue this evening? Is it healing well? What other questions do you have for me?
