My dog just had surgery yesterday because they found a mass

HI. my dog just had surgery yesterday because they found a mass on his gum line. It looked like a red gumball with a tiny little one hanging from it. When they were in surgery, they had to remove five teeth due to abscesses and loose teeth. My dog is 13 and I have been so reluctant to put him under, hence the problems. My vet will not tell me what he really thinks and I'm very concerned. They sent the mass for biopsy. My question is: Considering that he had teeth pulled and the abscesses, could this mass have been related??

What is the dog's name?Customer: WinnieJA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Winnie?Customer: She has been very very healthy her whole life. Very active. I feel like this may have come from her drinking water from a creek where I take her running, not that that matters at this point. I'm concerned for her over all health because of this, it seemed to pop up very quicklyJA: OK. Got it.

My name is***** dog seems to have allergies, or something

Hi, my name is***** dog seems to have allergies, or something of the sort. He'll often sneeze or "snort." I can hear the congestion or fluids. He seems like he struggles until he's able to get the congestion back down Not quite sure how to describe it JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue? Customer: He was seemingly wheezing a few minutes ago. He didn't appear to be struggling with breathing, but was making a sound that sounded very much like wheezing. He's not doing it anymore. Usually I'll pat him on the back a bit until he stops. Seems to help JA: OK got it.
