Hello SL Crew!

Just wondering if anyone has run into this issue or something similar in their sphynxy owning days?

I noticed that Nuhn had these little red patches under his lips since day one. Not gotten better, but not much worse either until today. They look a bit more angry. He's got adult canines coming in right now, so I'm not sure if it's contributing to the issue.

There are a few instances of a similar sores here - sores by mouth I think @MollysMom called them "rodent ulcers." :)

I hope it's nothing serious. But, if it continues to get
worse, I would take him to the Vet.

Mine is the one from the linked thread.
They went away within a week, and the vet didn't seem worried at all about them. Just keep an eye out in case they get bigger.

They're not getting bigger, but I spotted dry blood on his lips this morning.

I just had him in at the vet and he didn't seem to think too much of it. I heard using cortisone cream could help, but I'm sure he would just lick it off.

He's got a follow up exam with his doc on Thursday, so we'll see then.. :/

Thanks for the update. Glad to hear the vet doesn't seem to think too much of it! Hope it will get better soon.
