Default MOUTH GROWTH

Dear group

I have seen some wonderful answers to many questions and health
related advice on this NG...I commend all that have helped others, I hope I
can find some answers to my problem today...
My daughter has small pitbull 5 yrs old excellent health other
than we have noticed there was some swelling of his gums very red at first,
but after a round of antibiotics the swelling has not went away..But the
redness has went away but growths are still on back teeth but has color of
healthy gums....My first thought was he had been chewing on some sticks
after a paticularly windy day, I thought maybe just splinters. I 've never
seen a problem like this and have been in the dogs for more than 20
years.......I would appreciate any info group has on this subject.....Will

Tumor cases account for another important group of oral surgery patients.
Tumors of the mouth and throat are common in the dog but occur less
frequently in the cat. Oral tumors frequently go unnoticed by the pets'
owners until the tumor reaches a fairly advanced stage of development,
making it more difficult to treat successfully. A variety of lesions may
occur, including benign and malignant conditions. Non-cancerous masses and
swellings such as gingival hyperplasia and infectious conditions may be
confused with oral tumors.

....There's also abundant information at the World Small Animal Veterinary
Asssociation meetings. Go here and click on 2001 and 2002 meeting links and
look at all the dental stuff, of which there is a lot!:

......Has the vet said nothing about what he/she thinks it is? If the
redness has gone away after antibiotics, I would think it was bacterial
inflammation. I know in cats they can get an overgrowth of tissue (called
hyperplasia) when the gums are inflammed. This doesn't go away after the
inflammation is taken care of. You might try a Google search on gingival
hyperplasia also. If your vet has no clue, I'd go to a vet dentist.
There's no way to tell from here what it is.
