Help Me... Something Is Wrong With Baileys Teeth!
I just have a question. Bailey's breath has been HORRIBLE lately... like in the last few days it has gone from minor puppy breath to absolutely horrible breath! Shes 6 months old now and her baby teeth never fell out. When I opened up her mouth her adult teeth are growing right behind her baby teeth. also, her gums are bright purple in some places and Bailey has been acting weird lately. She opens her mouth like shes going to yawn but shes not yawning... she sometimes does this 5-10 times in a row and she does it often now... ALso she has been sticking her tounge in and out of her mouth alot. Im really concerned that there is something seriously wrong. I know alot of people on here are breaders and they probably have some experiance with this sort of thing. Any input would be very helpful. Thanks so much!
Also, I have asked before if I should be brushing her teeth and have been told no by her vet. anyway, she has an appointment at 4 to see her vet but if anyone has any ideas of what this could be please let me know!

Those extra teeth are causing the bad breath. Food gets caught inbetween the baby and the adult teeth

She will need to have her teeth brushed. You can get a specially made toothbrush for her and make sure you use toothpaste for dogs. Human toothpaste is not meant to be swallowed and would make her sick. Having the teeth pulled isn't too bad. They just put her out a bit with gas and get them right out of there. She'll need soft food for a day or two than she'll be fine.
