we have a dwarf jack who is about 8yrs. old she was a rescue due to her owners passing.we have had her about 6yrs. no health issues at all until a week ago. she started pawing at one side of her mouth.we thought maybe she bit her tongue,but we cannot see anything in her mouth. she drinks water&is eating but it takes her longer to eat than usual. in the past couple of days she has had a terrible smell coming from her mouth. is this a sign of an illness or what? please help! we have 3 of her "kids"also(1&2yr.old)

Hurt Mouth
by: Pics & Tics

It sounds to me like a bad tooth. Have you checked that with your vet? It does sound like she is hurting. The smell could be infection, and if it smells, it must be pretty bad. Hope you will look into it with your vet if you haven't already.

Let us know how it turns out. Poor baby.
