Poor girl! I would make sure to get her checked soon in case there is an infection. My vet had a great explanation when I had so much worry about dental problems...Chihuahuas have the same amount of teeth and roots as a Great Dane but not the bone structure to keep them as healthy. Bianca has have four dental cleanings and about 10 teeth removed in her life. It's hard work to keep hers clean.

I have a 4 year old Chi with awful teeth. My vet said pretty much the same thing. That Chis do not have the bone structure to keep their teeth as healthy as most breeds and their mouths tend to need more up keep. Osha had quite a few teeth extracted at the rescue before I adopted her. Her mouth is still tender from the bad condition of her teeth and until her mouth heals up some more she has to be on a soft diet.
