Hi my dog got an red lump near the mouth. I’m worried

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Some lumps are serious and some aren't. Let's see what the Veterinarian has to say. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about your dog?

Not really. She doesnt have a disease since birth. Maybe a little dry skin around the mouth area

Will you please attach pictures of what you’re seeing? There is an attachment function on the page that should allow you to post pictures and video. You can also use websites like http://www.imgur.com and youtube.com to upload pictures and video respectively. Once this is done, a set of links will appear. You can then post the link back and I can access them. If you are located in the USA and texting pictures/video would be preferable, please let me know. There is an additional charge for this service but it can take the guesswork out of trying to get information back to me and facilitate a faster response.

Its been growing for almost a month now to this big today. It doesn’t affect her eating or anything she’s still super hyper and happy though. I don’t see her straching it so I dont think it makes her itchy. Apparently it doesnt hurt when I touch it too, she seem quiet.

This looks like a papilloma. How old is your girl?

Ideally, this area should be examined. Two concerns we have will be for a papilloma and also for a mast cell tumor. They can look similar, especially in pictures. Your vet will likely take an impression of the area and evaluate it microscopically. Treatment for each will be different but hopefully this turns out to just be a papilloma since she's so young.

If you wish to try something at home, I can give you some instructions for holistic therapy to boost her immune system. Dogs who develop papillomas often do well with a medication called Thuja. You can purchase this online: https://www.amazon.com/Boiron-Occidentalis-Homeopathic-Quick-dissolving-Ingredient/dp/B0006NXG3Y?SubscriptionId=14H876SFAKFS0EHBYQ02&tag=hubpages-20&linkCode=xm2&camp=2025&creative=165953&creativeASIN=B0006NXG3Y&th=1 or here: https://www.onlynaturalpet.com/products/newton-homeopathics-thuja/161016.aspx#dtInstructions You'll also find directions for treatment at the 2nd link.

I hope this information has been helpful. I will be standing by if you have other questions. Let me know if I can help further. Also, before signing off today, please take the time to use the star rating system at the top of the page to leave a rating for me (bottom of the page if using the app). A 5-star rating is appreciated as top-notch answers are my focus. If you feel you have received anything less, please reply so that I may help until you’ve received the assistance you need. Until you issue a rating, the website will not compensate me for helping you. You will still be able to chat with me even after issuing a rating at no further charge on this thread.

I will also check in with you over the next few days to be sure you don’t need any additional assistance. If you would like to request me in the future for pet-related questions, you can do so by accessing this page: http://www.justanswer.com/pet/expert-pitrottmommy/?rpt=3800
