I know that you want to do this at home, but the best thing to do would be to take her to the doctor. She probably has severe gum disease which has caused this in the first place. She should probably be on an antibiotic. Gum infections can effct your dog's overall health. It is best to have her evaluated by the doctor and get her antibiotics if he feels it is appropriate. I know this is probably not what you want to hear, but it would be the best thing for her.
