Why can't my dog open it's mouth
Asked Jun 16, 2008, 04:45 PM
My 10 year old Golden Retreiver can hardly open her mouth. She is having trouble eating even when I feed can moist soft food. We can only take her outside for short periods when it's hot because she almost has her mouth closed when trying to pant. We had her to the vet couple days ago and was told she has last stages of kidney failure and probably would not last much more than 6 months. The vet did not have any thing to offer about the mouth. I hate to have my Susie put down before it's time... she seems to be enjoying life still... so I'm wondering if there is anything I can do for her.
