I have a 9 month old siberian husky. He's always been in great health, and I keep his mouth and teeth very clean. I went on vacation for 2 weeks and had a friend stay at my house to take care of him while I was gone and so he wouldn't have to go to a kennel. I got back today and was playing with him. Normally when I feed him, he gobbles the food down SO fast he doesn't even chew. When I fed him just now, he slowly picked at his food and just chewed it cautiously. I thought, oh, maybe he's just grown up a bit.
When I was playing with him, I noticed he had some pink bumps that looked like polyps or skin growths on his lip. Then he licked me, and his tongue felt more rough than usual, and noticed he had some white bumps on his tongue. Then I looked at the roof of his mouth and saw a growth there too! I'm taking him to the vet on monday, but has anyone encountered this or knows what it is? I'm so worried it's like some kind of a cancerous growth or something, but he seems so young to have that!
