Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Hello, my name is***** am a licensed veterinarian and I will try and help you as best as I can.
Please allow a few minutes for me to read your responses and for me to respond back.
What breed of dog is Mack?
Where is the mass: is it on the gums, on the skin?
How long has the mass been present?
Has the mass been checked out by your vet yet?
What do you mean by ADC?
I see. thank you.
Are you able to take a clear high resolution image and post it here for me to see?
I see. is it pink or black? or is it another color?
It sounds like this is a gingival mass. This could be gingival hyperplasia, which is a benign inflammation of the gums, or it could be an epulis which is a benign mass. This could also be a more aggressive tumor such as a fibrosarcoma or other type of cancer. I recommend having your vet check this out to make sure it does not look like something more aggressive. Your vet will likely recommend removing the mass under anesthesia and sending it to a pathologist to figure out what exactly it is.
You are very welcome.
I wish you and your dog the best.
Have a wonderful day!
