My name is***** and I am sorry to hear that Payton is bleeding from his mouth. Based on your description, I, too am wondering if there is a tumor in the back of his mouth. Another possible cause of bleeding would be abscess or foreign material stuck behind the rear teeth.
I would recommend having your vet examine him tomorrow. If he does not allow the vet to examine his mouth, they can give him a gentle sedative so they can examine him more closely. If there is a rotten tooth or foreign material, they can remove it or if there is a mass, they can biopsy it.
Does this help? What other questions do you have?
You're welcome. Do you have any more questions?
Okay. Have a great weekend. I hope there isn't any more bleeding.
Thanks so much for the update. That is an unusual case and I am glad to hear that your vet was able to make the diagnosis.
I hope all is well now and he is responding to treatments,
