Hello. I am sorry to hear Missy has you worried. My name is ***** ***** I have been a veterinary nurse for 26 years. I would be happy to help I just have a few questions.
Can you tell me exactly what you are seeing?
If you look in her mouth do you see any tarter build up, broken teeth or anything stuck in her mouth ( check the roof of the mouth as well)
How long has this been going on?
I may have additional questions once I know more about what she is doing that leads you to believe she is having some pain when eating.
