Contact your regular veterinary hospital ASAP and don’t handle your dog’s mouth
- If your regular veterinary hospital is open, contact them now. If they are closed, it is probably safe to wait until morning.
- If your dog is pawing at their mouth or rubbing their mouth on the ground, put a cone on them to prevent them from further aggravating the issue.
- There’s a good chance your dog’s mouth is painful, so do not handle their mouth as they may bite.
- Brushing your dog’s teeth at this point will not help.
