Hi there I was wondering if anyone has seen this before? My one year old Sphynx has developed these cuts/marks on his mouth that look like little fang marks? He doesn't have bad breathe or any teeth decay etc

Is it possible he is developing some sort of under bite and his teeth may be somehow digging in?

@Albertsphynx : it looks like the marks I saw with the sphynx of a friend. She went to the vet with her cat. The vet told her a lot of cats (not only sphynx) get this kind of markings. There was an explanation for the marking but I forget (sorry!) but it was normal and had nothing to do with bad teeth, hygiene or and overbite. She didn't have to do anything about it and it didn't hurt her sphynx in any way.

Hope others will chime in with more detailled ideas:)

Anna got that after being sedated for her dental. It was a like having really chapped lips. Vet said to just let it scab and heal. But watch it so not to get infection.
