Welcome to JustAnswer.com! My name is***** and I have been a licensed veterinarian for 10 years. I would be happy to answer your question. I'm sorry to hear that Sophie is having some bad breath and I understand the financial concerns. Since it is hard to get her out of the house, I would call around to area vet clinics to find out whether there is a house call veterinarian in your area that could examine Sophie at home. That way at least you would know what is causing her bad breath and she would not have to go through the stress of going to a vet clinic. There are some anti-anxiety medications that Sophie might benefit from, and you can discuss that with the house call vet, as well.
