    Pretty easy explanation for that....human nature dictates we only hear ...or read what we want to hear or read.

    The sore on his lip looks like the one my old dog has had since I got her. It was caused by a hot spot. It has never grown the hair back, been bald for almost 15 years now. I hope your vet helps you and your boy out!

    Vet said his gums are inflamed and looked like thy we're ready to bleed but other than they look fine. He gave me some antibiotics and pain meds. He said the gingivitis is causing his gums to hurt when he bites down. Give him the meds for 10 days no training until then.


    Thanks for the help once again. Hopefully these meds get him feeling better so we can get back to doing what he loves to do!

    Don't know if anyone brought this issue up but bumpers can get pretty hard this time of year and going through all the steps of FF with a dog that goes after the bumper pretty aggressively may be part of your cause.

    This was my thought.

    I would love to see picks of your dogs teeth. Does he have much plaque build up? I've never had a dog that young with plaque but it's hard to see in your other photo... It almost looks like plaque build up... Which I would call not normal for that age.

    Thanks for keeping us posted, I hope your dog makes a full recovery!

    If you don't mind sharing, I would be interested in learning what further treatment your vet has planned. Should a teeth cleaning take care of it? A change of food?

    All he said was it looks like he bit his lip on that one. My thought is it could be from the two dogs playing around with each other.
