Dogmama - That's what I was looking for - some way to seal her stubs. Right now we are warming everything to just room temperature. I'll ask the vet about it.

We aren't talking about ground down, we are talking about teeth ground down to the gumline and the upper canine as well. As for the teeth not being needed to kill, tear kibble, or canned food; since she's not eating food with any lumps, it's an indication she's in pain. She shies away from cold food, even pieces of turkey/chicken/hamburg and seems to have trouble getting even a small nibble of hot dog - as I watch her, she's trying to move things to her back teeth - which indicates at least sensitivity to me.

So while I wait for the vet consult, I would like to help her out. A coating of some kind, some kind of dental glue, something that will stick to her teeth to prevent pain.
Go to your dental aisle, Walmart, Dollar store...where ever. There are some tooth pain gels and some of those items may help temporarily so she can get some food down. I'd check w/ your personal vet and ask if it is problematic to use this daily. I would hand feed her, making sure the food got to her back teeth, warming the food a bit so it isn't chilled. Same w/ water, make it room temp to help. Poor dog

I hope it can work for her. I used it for a cavity while on vacation, lasted a couple weeks.

Update:

That foster was adopted and is now happily chomping away on kibble and all kinds of table food the kids in the family give her. We found other injuries on her that were obvious signs of her being a bait dog or otherwise abused. Lots of love and snuggles and she became a perfect family dog. She romps with the family's older male dog who dotes on her and greets the children when they get off the school bus.

I think the stubs just "died" - but she doesn't seem to be having pain. She eats everything according to her foster family. The best part of her adoption is that the folks who adopted her were the family I had asked to take care of her during our week vacation. Their children fell in love with her as did their older male dog.

And I still get to see her!
