Welcome to Dog Health Forums. Whether your dog was diagnosed with a health condition you never heard about before or you are looking for a place to share thoughts or obtain support about a certain dog disease with other dog owners, this is the right place. Obviously, this is not the place to ask questions when your dog is seriously ill. If so, please don’t waste your time on a forum, but rather, rush your dog to the vet!

Looks Gruesome, dog in dental pain, help!

RE: Looks Gruesome, dog in dental pain, help!
You might want to keep the games limited to soft doggy toys.

If you can't afford a huge dental bill for extracting all the decayed teeth, you might consider doing it a couple at a time. Where your dog might be on long term antibiotics such as Clindamycin, or a rotation with Metronidazole, and Clavamox. Vets generally will not prescribe antibiotics for extended periods (e.g. the rest of the dog's life), due to concerns about side effects of the drugs with extended use (e.g. GI upsets, diarrhea), along with promoting bacterial antibiotic resistance.

In summary: If cost is an issue, then create a plan with the Vet to have the dental work performed in steps over the next few months.
