Dog with bleeding gumsMy 11 month old Shetland Sheepdog has red, but not swollen, bleeding gums. The redness is much darker closer to the teeth and his breath is unpleasant. His tongue is normal, no coating or redness, no unusual thirst, no change in appetite. His teeth are perfect with no tartar buildup and the redness is markedly worse in the evening. I have tried Merc Sol and Merc Cor as well as a Calendula/Goldenseal rinse, all without success. I will try to find some Merc Viv as it seems to fit the symptoms but any other help I can get will be most appreciated!

Phosphorus-Gums swollen and bleeding/ulcerated.
But since you said breath is bad Merc Viv is a strong possibility. Consider a 2 week course of 30C strength given 2 x daily.
Please examine your dogs mouth and note any infection/tooth decay/tongue color, etc. You may want to post your case on www dot homeocurecenter dot com. Lots of great advice from a qualified homeopathic vet. He may also suggest a calendula mother tincture rinse for the mouth.
If you are feeding your dog kibble please switch him to wet food. Raw diets are the best, it is what my canines and felines thrive on. Kibble lodges in the gums and causes tartar/infection/decay, etc.
