    DefaultWeird growth on Buck's lip :(

    Umm I noticed this about a couple weeks ago. It was small white bump on his lip on the side of his mouth near his canine. It looked like a zit. I noticed today it has doubled in size! It looks like some kind of white round growth!
    I am calling the vet tomorrow and will make an appointment. But I was wondering if anyone else has experienced this before?? Is it something serious? It's hard to take a photo of because he won't hold still. The only way you can see it is if you lift his lip with your hand.
    Wonder what it is... ???

    I posted it here since we get more traffic...and I really need to get some idea of what is going on before I can get to the vet :-\

    I dunno what it is, but good thoughts and prayers that it's nothing.

    Hate to scare you, but it may be a cyst, melanoma, or worse, or it could be as simple as a wart. I hope for the latter! Good luck!

    I hope it's a wart. He doesn't appear to be bothered by it.

    Sounds like what Mambo had. He started out with one and turned into about 40. Everything I read says they are whitish, but Mambos was grayish. I took him to the vet and its nothing serious at all. They cant even treat it. It went away on its own within a month or so.

    Hope its nothing big. Let us know what your vet said. I was able to get a picture. This was a larger wart, when I first noticed them it was much smaller.

    Its probably just a skin tag. Oona had one for a couple of years and it finally fell off.

    Thanks guys.

    Buck's "growth" is whitish in color. I think it may be what Mambo had. Hopefully it goes away soon. There's only one.

    We just went through the same thing. Tucker's growth was near his mouth on his snout. The growth tripled in size quickly and I was concerned and took him into the vet. There was no difference in Tuckers activity level, attitude or food intake. The vet said it was the equivalent of a human wart and that it would fall off. It fell off the next week. Good luck!

    if its what Mambo had it will go away on its own. But it could be so many things. I took Mambo in just to make sure. I think the reason they said Mambo got so many was due to a weak immune system. But they all fell off. He didnt slow down one bit.
