Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hi there. My name is ***** ***** I'm happy to help you with your question. Just like an in person consult, I have a couple questions of my own to help ensure I give you the best advice possible....
Is his mouth still bleeding?
Can you actually see where the blood is coming from?
When was the last time he saw his vet?
Great. Thanks for the additional information. I really appreciate it.
Since he has a history of dental issues, if this were me, I'd give your vet a call and see if they'll send out some antibiotics and possibly some pain medication to help him feel more comfortable.
If this is truly an abscessed tooth then they'd want to get that infection cleared up before they did any sort of procedure, and they likely agree that he's too old to put under anesthesia, but they'll likely have no problem sending out antibiotics to help him feel better.
I hope this helps.
