Aye, I think you're right about necrotic (dead cells due to no blood supply). I have had someone qualified look at him (not a mercenary vet, the cnuts) & they say it's just an extension of his existing (appalling) dental health.Bugger. Cyst or abscess that's necrotic? Hope the doc can sort it out. Antibiotics?
No dinner. Doc may need to anaesthetise him to take a look and clean it up, so get it seen to ASAP. You can give him soft cooked chicken while he's home recovering.
Anyone have any idea what this might be please?
Looks like gums have mummified themselves on one side, turning grey & wrinkly, with white plaque(?) bit at bottom left of circled area

Rescue dog, c.13yrs, came with shitty teeth
- Diet hydration demeanour all normal 4hrs ago
- Started 3hrs ago with him licking the carpet, trying to eat an piece of fluff or debris - as though trying to make himself vomit
- Walked 1hr ago, motions, habits, etc all exactly normal
- Inspected mouth 30mins ago & saw offending grey gum, which whilst not sensitive to the touch he's very reluctant to hold his mouth open for long, as if an irritation
- Call the vet
- Give him a chicken dinner (last meal) before he goes
You clearly have problems, accepting his position as the Alpha-male, in your household !!
Keep a very close eye on the dog.
Human running speed, continually and over distance, is not a natural dog setting and there's a danger of forced exercise which is extremely stressful - you're the boss and he will do whatever he has to to keep up with you, even if it's not very good for him (i.e. he's carrying an injury). If he can't keep up for any reason, he's likely to panic and really push himself.
Admittedly this is more likely with those owners who insist on riding a bike. If it's just running, he'll probably get used to it, accept missing out on the interesting sniffs and endure the boredom to keep you happy.
