Default Necrotic tongue?

Lilly has been slightly off colour since Christmas day. I took her in to the vet yesterday and she had some bad spinal pain. I started her on Rimadyl and there was some slight improvement.

She was still off this morning and her breath smelled awful. I opened her mouth and her tongue looked bruised around her bottom canines.

I resolved to take her in with me tomorrow. During the day it has got worse. Now her underside of the tongue is green and her lips around the bottom canines have a thrush like growth and are swollen.

I'm worried sick. I've given her a dose of Synulox and some Rimadyl.

Thoughts on what it may be? And any vibes you have to spare for my old lady.

Any way you could get her into a vet today? From a quick google search this seeems like a very serious problem, possibly organ failure of some sort. Does she have a history of kidney problems? I'll definitely send vibes your way!

Its almost 9pm here. I will have her in by 7.30 tomorrow. I spoke to my vet and she said it sounds like an abrasion.

She has no appetite loss and is in general good cheer so I don't think its kidney failure. We will do a urine analysis tomorrow just in case.

The smell seems to have responded to the synulox.

Its confirmed that the ends of the tongue are necrotic and sloughing off.

They don't know why. It isn't her kidneys. Her ear tips and toes are fine so they don't think it is vasculitis. Its a waiting game now. Antibiotics, pain killers and chloroexine rinse.

Please keep the vibes coming for her.

Further investigation and it looks like a bite wound. She must have fallen because of the spinal pain and bitten down hard. Being older it took more of a knock and took longer to heal and infection set in.
