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 some questions of my own to help ensure I give you the best advice possible.....
When was the last time Wilson saw his vet?
Is Wilson having any problems eating/drinking?
Can you see inside his mouth and see if there's any swelling or redness?
Great. Thanks for the additional information. I really appreciate it.
Usually when we see this kind of black, sticky goo on the mouth of a dog, it's indicitive of a dental infection brewing.
The problem can often be under the gumline so it may not be visible to you when you look in his mouth.
Since you do have a vet, you may want to give them a call. They are acquainted with Wilson and know that he has complex medical issues that keep you from taking him to the vet, so they may be willing to send out some antibiotics to help him get over this before it gets worse without making you bring him in.
I hope he's feeling better soon!
