|First off, i would like to say, first impression of this website - LOVE IT!
Now, my dear old friend, Sally, has a little issue...
About 5-6 days ago, she had a bone. I noticed her mouth bleeding, which it always does with a bone, because she gets quite agressive with it! Anyway, i thought it was her tongue, checked it, all was OK.
Each day after that, at feeding time, noticed her mouth bleeding abit. And again thought 'hmmm, must be her tongue', as thats were the bit of blood was.
Anyway, went out into her 5* kennel (lol) today, to notice abit of blood on the newly painted walls (naughty sal!) so thats when i opened her mouth up to examine it.. to find a red, fleshy lump, behind her front teeth on the roof of her mouth, and in between her teeth. So i freaked out (im such a hissy when it comes to sally).. i then called the vets, which had closed Mid-day. My first impression was that it was definately an abscess caused by the bone.. and good sources also told me it was probably an abscess.
Its not causing her any pain at the moment, so right now, i wouldnt class it as an emergency, but from now until the vets open on Monday, what would be the best thing to do.. as i say, she is perfect in her self, still very bubbly, very waggy tail, eating and drinking really well.
So yeah, just looking for opinions, what to do?
P.s - Sorry, i know this is my first post, and it is a very long one at that!!! lol
