    DefaultCyst on the Gums?

    I took Jasmine in for a vet checkup last week and the vet noticed that she has a large round cyst on the maxillary arcade directly in the center of where the incisors should be. Now - my suspicion is because of her poor diet from her previous owner, ("Oh - her favorite food is McDonald's Chicken McNuggets - but she'll likes cheeseburgers and french fries as well. she'll eat anything" ~ direct quote from previous owner), that this has caused her teeth and gums to not develop the way they are supposed to.

    My vet's is looking into some options to fix this, but I was wondering if anyone has ever seen this before and if so what was done to fix it?

    I've included a picture of the cyst so you can see what I'm talking about (and if you look closely in the background, a Burger King Iced Coffee cup because it's cheaper than Starbucks and just as tasty - oh the irony . . .).

    Not to worry you, but any cyst on the gum or mouth should not be taken lightly. I would go back to the vet and if they don't or won't find out what it is, then go to another vet. It could be something harmless, or a tooth, or many other things.

    It occurred to me as I was researching some more behavior problems, that I should simply say that the vet examined Jasmine and determined that the cyst could be removed. A few days later she was back to normal with no issues at all. Her tooth was behind the cyst and so everything as far as that goes is good! Thanks for your thoughts!
