Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.
How did this cut occur?Can you share pics?
This looks far past just a cut, this looks to be abscessed. Can you share pics of the cut itself and not the swelling from the outside of the mouth?
At this point, I think your best bet would be through a veterinary examination. She truly need antibiotics. This area looks to be grossly swollen and likely abscessed. I would try to have her examined tomorrow morning, at the latest, since antibiotics are not OTC items and require a prescription to obtain.
