Are her molars overgrown? Did the vet take x-rays? If the molars were filed, were the cheeks infected? Is the chin on an antibiotic?

Why are you giving grapes to your chin? A raisin is more appropriate for a rare treat, as a grape has a lot of water. Either way, treats shouldn't be part of her normal diet. What is her regular diet?
