    Default AFT has bump on lip


    LOG IN TO CLOSE THIS AD   


    About a week or 2 I noticed that my AFT has a weird bump on her lip. I didn't think much of it but it hasnt disappeared yet. It hasnt gotten bigger either tho. Should I be concerned?

    So after I posted this I looked at her lip and I poked at the area. Bump on lip was bad description it was more like a scab. I poke around at it and since she didn't show any signs of pain or discomfort so I continued. It started to get loser and within a couple of seconds it came off and out of her mouth. It kinda looked like what's in your teeth after you eat steak but yellow. I am wondering if it was just food that got stuck in her mouth. Since its gone I cant get a picture.

    Yeah pretty much. I dont know if I am reading into it but there is still kinda a bump on her lip. I was thinking itwas just sore or swollen cuz whatever was in her mouth was there for a while (i didn't know what it was and didn't want to mess with it) I am afraid of mouth rot for this reason but her appetite is still good and the rest of her mouth is fine. Ive attatched what it is now (the side that had that thing sticking out) and what her mouth normally looks like (the side that didn't have the thing sticking out)

    Misty's lip line is definitely irregular on the right side. That could be the beginnings of infectious stomatitis (mouth rot).

    What does the inside of her mouth look like? Was the "yellow stuff" lumpy like cottage cheese?

    You may wish to contact an exotics vet. It's better to be safe rather than sorry. Here's a worldwide link to help you find one.

    I tried to gently open her mouth but no luck. The stuff i pulled out looked like if you were to eat steak and then floss. The stuff that was poking out was hard, not like the stuff that was pulled out of her mouth

    This might help re opening her mouth:

    I just opened her mouth and there was a huge white spot on her tongue. It defiantly looked like puss but it was only on one area of her tongue and opposite of the outer infection. I am now panicking.
