Mom was brushing my teeth on Sunday and when she lifted my gum she saw i had what looks to be a canker sore on the inside of my upper lip and my gum was inflamed . Do dogs get canker sores?? Then hurricane Sandy rolled through so the doc's weren't open .. but mommy took me last night to get it looked at . It doesn't bother me at all , i am still kissing , licking and chewing my feet, eating and drinking .. so that is all good. I was scared to death .. and madder than you know what at mom for taking me. I wouldn't even give her any kisses when we got home. Bottom line is nothing really happened .. Dr.T looked at it and said it isn't infected .. was wondering if i could have traumatized my lip by chewing on something , ( mom said nope, i don't chew on things other than my feet) .. so he said mom can try any over the counter type of stuff, like anbesol etc.. and to keep a very close eye on it. If it doesn't go away on its own in about a week to 10 days we are to go back and have him take another look at it. Mom says if it doesn't clear up than she will get me an appointment with Dr. Luskin my oral surgeon .. it is very strange as i don't have any teeth up top .. just five lower ones on the bottom .. we will keep you posted ! Mom says she is very thankful it doesn't bother me and i am still eating !

I am happy your Mom took you to the vet and also that it does not hurt. I hope it heals up on it's own. Maybe you gnawed on your nails during the storm and scratched it.? I'd be shaking like a leaf in something like that and having to wear my thundershirt. My whole family is happy you came through it well and safe. xoxo
