Mouth still smells unpleasent

Hello all-haven't been on here to email for ages so thought I would share with you about Sprocket having a "small op" to remove what was a "skin tag" that he has had since birth. It had started to go into a hard lump so time to take out vet thought. All went ok-whilst he was "knocked out" the vet nurse rang to say he had a tooth that could be uncomfortable so should they take it out?-"well if needed to come out then yes please do it " I said. We picked him up later that afternoon-he had 2 teeth out, was dribbling blood and was on his legs where he had been laying with chin on front legs, was also on his ears fluff. 2 types of antibiotics and bottle of pain relief. £ 300 more than I was expecting-teeth are expensive!! My job today is to trim, brush and was parts of him now that he has a couple of days to get over it all. What a mess he is in though-he can't open mouth to far-think hurts jaw as were back teeth-he won't leave my side and just keep whining-poor baby-I feel awful though it was a good job done. He now has a very runny nose. His mouth still has the same smell as before which was started all this off!! xx xx :tea: :wag: :( :ghug:

:( :cry: :ghug: Poor baby!
Sprocket is back to his old self now-took a while and I was rather concerned but he is barking again and wagging his tail.
Could the smell possibly be coming from the hair around his mouth? Did you ask the Vet? Glad he's acting like himself again. :banana:
Now that his mouth has healed well and he is now off all medication both his tum and mouth are normal again-no upsets or smells. I try to keep his chin fur short because it is always wet and mucky and clods together. I try to wipe his chin after a drink but he finds various places to drink around the garden. He has started to eat long grass now though! :cow: ?

:wag: :tea:
