    take her in for an exam and cleaning if needed. Something to consider because the vet may/should ask: what are you feeding, including treats, do you brush your dog's teeth and if so how often, do you give her chew toys/treats/rawhides/etc.., does she chew on the kennel fence or "fence fight" with other dogs.
