Bad Teeth And Mouth


Recommended Posts

Percy, almost 12, joined us in July. He only had about 8 teeth. He didn't get a dental before we got him but he had been on an antibiotic for his mouth. This sweet boy had a long mystery history.

 

In the past week his breath got bad quickly. Sometimes there would be a bit of blood on the inner side of that wonky right lower canine.

 

Percy has been a bit hand shy around his head and won't let me get a good look at his mouth. His teeth in July did not look like they are in these pictures.

The black stuff appears to be flakes of skin that I can wipe off. Gum line is inflamed. And what's that little red pimple?

 

More black flaky stuff and inflammation and a nasty upper canine.

I'll be bringing Percy to the vet on Monday when Mazy gets her swollen toe rechecked. I'm hoping he can either get a dental this week or at least start prophylactics.

 

My sleepy happy boy despite having an unhappy mouth.

Poor Percy! Ducky I bet he'd be a much happier hound having them removed (if he's healthy enough). Our Ambi has no teeth left and he does not miss them. He eats smaller size kibble with water on them with no problems.

Looks like they all need to come out. He'll be happier and healthier! Poor baby! {{{smooches}}}

Eeekk-Ducky-they all need to go. One thing he will have on his side-those teeth are so diseased extractions will be very easy. I have had some of these type of teeth actually just fall out when attempting to scale.

Is the black stuff flaking dead tissue?

Poor Percy; I bet it hurts to eat. I think he'd be happier with no teefies, healthy gums and soft food :grouphug

Percy loves to eat and this isn't slowing him down. I was told that he enjoys having lunch, in addition to breakfast and dinner. Sure enough, around noon time he will start talking to me.

We have 3 waterbowls in the house. One is in Charlie's crate, one big one with the food bowls and one little one beside Charlie's dinner bowl.

Mazy will no longer drink from the big bowl. Instead she gets water from Charlie's bowls - yes even sticking her head through his open crate door to get to the bowl there.

 

Water is changed out even more frequently from Percy's bowl, plus it gets washed each time, but Mazy won't even drink fresh water out of it.

Since tbhounds has posted, you don't need this, but...

 

Those teeth look like the badly infected ones that some of my girls have had. I hope he's up for surgery and they come out easily. He'll be better off without them.

His lab work done in July was very good, especially for an old guy.

My vet met him 2 weeks later and said his teeth were so so. They did not look like today's pictures then.

Good luck today Percy! You are going to feel so much better once those teeth and infection are gone!

Ducky, seriously, I almost threw up at that last picture!!

 

Percy! Dude! What's going on??

I almost barfed too. And yet he is happy and bouncy and showing no sign of mouth pain. Oh, and he still demands to get a lunch every day too.
