Mouth Ulcer

Oscar has what i am assuming, is a mouth ulcer. I noticed he was sort of grimacing on one side of his mouth for the past 4 or 5 days, but despite numerous inverstigations, i havent, until today, been able to find anything.

Anyone else had any experience, and if so, what treatment, if any, was prescribed? Also, does anyone know of anything i can put on it, as its obviously bothering him a bit.

Personal experiences (if any) please, not copied and pasted articles from Google.




Some pics, but its not really very clear. Once you move his lips it flattens out, and if i try and take a pic whilst he's panting, he just tries to lick me.

Re: Mouth Ulcer

Is it possible that that part of his lip is coming into contact with some tartar on his teeth? I can't quite see from that photo.

No. He teeth are actually missing on that side, plus its on the fleshy "smiley" bit most Staffies have in abundance, and doesnt actually touch the teeth.

Ordinarily, id assume it was from him having a munch on a stick, as he has created matching sores either side doing that, but i know he hasnt done that for the past few weeks. Plus its been a few days, and that normally heals relaly quickly.

Re: Mouth Ulcer

If its not cleared up by next week, or at least improving, my vet wants to biopsy it, along with a lump i found on his gums.

However, im not keen on going ahead with this. In a way im thinking its best to assume it is something sinister/cancerous, and treat conservatively.
