Whenever we find a lump on a much-loved pet, it is not uncommon for our minds to leap straight to the worst-case scenario. While there are cancers that can produce malignant tumours in the mouth area, there are also non-cancerous causes. Your vet can test the lump if needed by taking a biopsy, which is another reason to make that vet visit promptly.
Frequent examinations of your dog’s mouth, for instance, while completing regular teeth brushing, will allow you to spot any new and suspicious lumps or bumps as quickly as possible and take your dog to the vet to have them looked at.
Mouths are vital to our dogs. Not only do they eat and drink using their mouths, but the mouth is also an essential part of how they investigate and interact with their world. This is why it is important to make sure they have great oral health and check their mouths regularly for signs of any problems, including the presence of any lumps or bumps. The best way to check is to have a look when completing your regular dog tooth brushing.
