Hey guys,
Gracie has a big cut up between her gum and cheek (that littke groove inside her mouth) it is pretty fleshy and her cheek and lip on the side is swollen.

I dont think its something to take her to the vet over, maybe just some bathing? as its in her mouth it should heal nicely.

Any sugestions?

There is nothing you can really do inside the mouth just don't let her eat anything real hard and soft food for a few days might be a good idea. Cuts in the mouth heal quickly so I would not worry too much. Watch for infection or if the swelling gets worse then go to the vet. If you have antibiotics already then start her on a course, if not then just watch for any oozing or bad odor.

Any many cuts in the mouth heal just fine unless she gets an infection but i would not worry too much it should be fine.

I soaked her food last night to make it nice and soft, she has smelly breath anyways but its a little worse atm (maybe just from the ooze?) its a clear sicky dribble that will stick to the fur on her mouth.
I will closely watch it for a few days.
Thank You
