My late golden had this on her lip, we never did get under control and we spent thousands of dollars trying. Dyson has this on his lip right now, we just treat it with tea tree oil.

what is it?

does the treatment help? does it spread or just kind of a continuous thing but does no real harm?

I would (seriously) go to the vet before trying any home remedies. Regular mouth papillomas do not need to be surgically removed, but these types of papillomas do not fall off on their own. They can get cleaner margins on it the smaller it is when it is removed...sooner is better than later....

I think it kind of looks like a histiocytoma....although I'm no expert and I'm not sure they can get them in or near their mouth, but it's worth asking the vet. Histiocytoma are benign and my dogs went away completed after they injected it with a needle to biopsy it. Good luck and let us know what it is!!

I remember my GSD getting those when he was probably about a year. The went away on their own, I think the vet said it was some kind of pimple, but that was a long time ago.

so it seems a little less red/pink today. Maybe a little paler in color and maybe smaller (i might be making that up though).

anyways i made a vet appointment for tomorrow just to check it out.

Good call . . . better to get it checked out. Hopefully it's nothing serious.

I was thinking they said it was a staph infection, but really don't remember. I would at least see a vet, and see what they say. I do know Nugget had a lot of skin grafts. This was something we always did battle and never did rid of it. The tea tree oil did keep it under control. You can pm me if you want.

So I went to the vet today and they prescribed some antibiotics. She didn't seem to know exactly what it was but thought it could be something as simple as biting her lip or it could have happened when chewing on something. So she said to take the antibiotics and not worry unless it gets worse or bigger or is still there in a couple weeks.

Hopefully the antibiotics will work.

just wanted to bump this up to let everyone know what happened.

After taking her to the vet and being on antibiotics for 2 weeks the bump started shrinking and getting better.

the bump is now completely gone. vet said it most likely was some type of infection that was just taking a while to heal due to the location being on her lip.

glad it all cleared up (i have a tendency to be a worry wart haha)
