what could this pink/red growth in my dogs mouth be?


Posted by sandizoghby

My dog had a growth in his mouth that we had removed last month, we thought it was due to rooths of a tooth that had been knocked out. However the growth has returned. What could this be? We had it checked for cancer and it was not that.

Dogs can get warts in their mouths so this is a possibility.  These growths, which are grey to white and look sort of like cauliflower florets, can be unsightly and quite large. As long as they don't bother the dog, they usually disappear on their own. If they do bother the dog, they can be removed surgically. However, if this is done before they're mature, they may return.
