    E881A797-83CE-4731-A296-D211C30F0BF1.jpeg Hello everyone. Just wondering if anyone can tell me what this might be on my 4 year old male chihuahuas lower lip. Obviously if it doesn’t clear in a couple of days I will take him to the vets.

    It came very suddenly (in a matter of a few hours) and doesn’t seem to be causing him any pain or discomfort. It’s not raised and is the same texture as the rest of the skin on his lip. He hasn’t been in contact with anything he shouldn’t have been (that I know of, he rarely leaves my sight) and hasn’t eaten or drank anything out of the ordinary or that could’ve been hot enough to burn him. Any reassurance would be very much appreciated. Thanks

    Sorry, I don't know but it's always best to get unexplained lumps, bumps and skin changes checked by a vet.

    Get your dog checked over by a vet just to make sure its nothing serious.

    .

    it's hard to tell from a photo, but it looks like a low dome, with an oval shape rather than a circular one.

    When i blow-up the photo, the skin looks angry / irritated - an overall flushing or dark "blush".
    I hope the vet can I-D the cause. :( . Please update us?
