Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hi there. My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help you with your question.
Is Ginger still eating/drinking normally?
Is there any swelling in her mouth?
What is the name of the city/state where you are currently?
So it's just the bad breath?Is she drooling at all?
Is she acting differently than normal?
Great. Thanks for the additional information. I really appreciate it.
Unfortunately, there's nothing you can really do to treat this on your own. You could try 1 baby aspirin (only aspirin....we never use products containing acetaminophen, ibuprofen or naproxen sodium in dogs as they can be toxic even in very small amounts) once every 10 hours if she's really uncomfortable.
That being said....if she develops a fever, stops eating/drinking, becomes increasingly painful, or you notice any swelling in her face, then you should find her an emergency vet where you are. You can go to: ***** ***** plug in the zip code of where you are and they'll point you in the direction of the one closest to you.
If she does well through the weekend, then on Monday you should absolutely give a vet a call and have them take a peek, just to be on the safe side.
I hope this helps.
I wouldn't. Peroxide is used to induce vomiting in dogs, so if you get it in her mouth, you could actually trigger her to vomit.
