I am sorry to hear you are worried about Zoey. My name is Rebecca. I am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.

Is she eating normally, or is she having any difficulty chewing? Discharge from the nose and mouth could be from a broken or infected tooth. Another possibility is that something (grass, a bit of bone, stick, etc.) is caught between teeth or under her tonsils. If she were my patient or my own dog, I would start with a good exam of her mouth: under her tongue, under her tonsils, behind her back teeth, and examining all her teeth. I would feel for enlarged lymph nodes in her neck; if there are enlarged nodes that can indicate an infection in the mouth or teeth. If there is a bad odor from the mouth, probably something is infected or a piece of foreign material is stuck in there.

Let me know if I can answer any more of your questions.
