I was brushing my dog's teeth this weekend and I noticed a small round white growth just on the inside of her lower front lip. It's only about the size of one of her smallest front teeth. I made a vet appointment today and will be getting her in for a visit to check it out on Weds, but I was just wondering if anyone else had seen something like this? I hope it's nothing...

How old is your dog? If it's a puppy, it's like just puppy warts. Nothing to do about them and they resolve spontaneously.

She's between 2 and 3 years old. She's a recycled dog so I don't know her exact age.

Could be a canker sore. What did the vet say?

You don't happen to feed raw do you?

No I don't.

And for Erma, vet appointment isn't until Weds. They said it didn't sound urgent so I didn't do an emergency visit.

Ok. Try looking up Canine papillomavirus virus. I know some one on another forum that just went through this.

I'm not sure if this is in fact what your dog has, but it sounds a lot like her posts.

Well, had my dog in to the vet last night to check out that thing in her mouth. Vet says it looks like she got bit on the lip by another dog and it formed a piece of scar tissue on the puncture wound. This is actually completely possible, as in October she was in an open-run kennel for two weeks while I was out of the country. It's small enough that the kennel operators probably would never have noticed it unless they actually saw it happen. Anyway, I'm relieved it's not something that's going to get bigger.
