Palate (Roof of Mouth) Seems Swollen and Mushy
My almost 9 year old dog seemed to overnight have a very loose front tooth and palate (roof of mouth) seems swollen and mushy feeling. I took her to the vet, could not see or talk to vet due to COVID, and they pulled the very loose tooth. They said tooth must have had trauma, don't see how it happened if even happened, and died from the root.
They gave me Clindamycin 75mg for seven days, starting day 4 today. I have noticed no change in the swelling mushy feeling. My dog never seems to be in any pain or even bothered from any of this.
Is it maybe normal for the palate to be like this? I brush her teeth everyday but guess never really looked at the palate before.
Any advise would be greatly appreciated to help ease my mind.
