Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
Hello, my name isXXXXX am a licensed veterinarian and I will try and help you as best as I can.
Do you know how long this has been present? Does she paw at this at all? Is it bleeding at all?
Hi Dr. G.
I just noticed the little wad this morning. Sadie was lying upside down so I could see inside her mouth. It is not bleeding, no. I don't know whether she has pawed at it - right now she's wearing a cone on her head until an abrasion on her leg heals.
I see. Are you able to take a picture of it? you can post it in the chat using the black paperclip icon above the response bar
I could try to take a picture. I need to be off to work at the moment. I'll check back later this morning . . .
Dr. G - No, sorry, I can't get a photo. Sadie is a little gun shy about unusual handling this week.
Since this morning, the growth has gotten a little bigger. It's whitish-pink, and a little bit cauliflower-looking. Do dogs get abscesses or temporary growths like this in their lip tissues? As far as I know, this growth appeared suddenly. I would have noticed it.
Away now to work again until 6:30 or so. Will someone follow up with me?
Thank you. My hopes of getting a photo are slim to none. I will follow up with my vet. Just the ideas of what this blobby thing might be are very helpful to my anxiety.Attachments are only available to registered users.Register Here
