I googled it and the word I was looking for was Epulides.


My bitch had one of these. The vet removed the growth over the tooth and that was it. It never regrew.

He's been poked and we don't have any answers, as yet. Nothing showed on x-rays - his nasal cavity is completely clear, which good news - no bony growth to explain the swelling.

But that's the only result, really. The vet rang me first to say that she thought it was all coming from the dying canine tooth, as it was wobbly, and that she was going to remove that and go from there. 10 minutes later, she'd had him transferred to the dental studio with much brighter lights and had a better look at his gums - she now thinks that the canine tooth is actually a symptom, not the cause, because all of the teeth on that gumline are wobbly even though the rest are healthy.

The gum itself is swollen and angry and the texture is odd. "Knobbly and flowery" which I absolutely do not like the sound of. So he's still got all his teeth, and she's done punch biopsies of the gum to try and find out what's going on. Over the weekend, the swelling has increased so that the bump in the roof of his mouth is now "connected" to the gums and his muzzle in terms of swelling - it now goes from his front teeth backwards and to the bump, all one thing now. It's frightening the hell out of me to be quite honest!

She's done fine needle aspirates of the outside of his muzzle too, and said she got stuff out of it but couldn't say what it was. No pus though. So those have been sent off as well. It could all take up to a week to come back but with luck, it'll be faster so treatment can be started while I'm still here.

That all sounds incredibly scary - I hope it turns out to be nothing serious for the big guy.

It really is and with the extra growth over the weekend and the findings (or lack of) from today, it's getting harder not to be scared about it all sad.gif

hug.gif hug.gif Always awful but when it's a relatively young dog it always seems so unexpected when stuff happens like this, hope he's ok.

This really isn't what you need when you're just about to go on holiday. Really hoping that you get some good news in the next day or two.

Nope. And it's getting harder not to think about unpleasant possibilities, as the angry colour and bumpiness that was only over the dodgy tooth is now spreading round to the other side of the mouth where the gum meets the lip. I really need those results to hurry up and come back. Even if it is nasty - the not knowing is worse, at the moment. At least with an answer, there would be a plan in place either way. Right now we're in limbo and it's horrible.
