    I picked up a foster dog yesterday and noticed his foul breath. He’s 6 years old and very sweet. If front teeth look ok but his back teeth look infected and some are loose. I’m concerned

    It's usually in the back teeth where you find the infection, it sounds like he may need a dental, sooner rather then later... During this shutdown most vet clinics have cut back on dental surgeries during this shutdown. Infected and rotten teeth can poison the whole body so I would want to have that checked before adoption. At Muttville more than 50% of our incoming dogs need extensive dental work.
