now i checked her again and i saw that the blood is coming from her gums. nearly 4 of her teeth are loose. she is drinking water but is not eating obviously she is trying but im certain her teeth hurt.
Dogs, similar to humans, can develop periodontal disease which can lead to tooth loss. A dogs teeth need to be periodically cleaned, and possibly cleaned while under sedation at a vet if they have bad tarter buildup. If the dogs teeth are loose and gums are bleeding within must be done loss due to a long term periodontal disease. A vet can determine if the dog would be more comfortable (an healthier) with the teeth removed. Ask a vet what type of diet the dog should be on base on it's age and condition. Good Luck, the situation may not be able to be repaired at this point, but you sure can make the dog comfortable and bullish!

more info needed
She NEEDS to walk to the vet and have the teeth removed/fixed if they are loose.. and they may give her some spasm meds / antibiotics. It's painful for dogs just as it is for humans when their teeth hurt. The vet has to examine her. You don't want the dog to go and get an infection and be in that type of pain.
Please take her ASAP.
How old is this dog?
She should be seen by a vet. Not only are bad teeth a problem for her intake, they can cause heart problems in herself as well as you.
