Hey everyone! Sorry it’s been so long! Brisket has been doing well for the most part, but today I noticed something weird.

He was trying to chew on one of my daughters stuffed animals when I noticed he was smacking, so I opened his mouth to try and see if he had anything in there, but instead noticed these...

They look like blisters and are super hard. I don’t know if they bother him, but by the way he was smacking, I think he may have mistook them for something in his mouth he picked up off the floor and kept trying to mess with them.

He has some acne on his chin also, and I’ve been cleansing his chin, but the blisters in his mouth are worrying me a little.

Anyone have any ideas of what this could be?

Here’s a more recent photo of him. He’s gotten so big!

He may have eaten a wasp or some other bug. Benadryl would be my first choice if he isn't having any breathing trouble or other major symptoms. Mimi used to eat something in the backyard and get hives all over. Vet said she ate something, maybe a bug, that she shouldn't have. She eventually figured out not to eat that bug, plant whatever. Only happened a few times. Benadryl always helped.

He looks fantastic... so handsome!

I agree... try some Benadryl, if not change in a few days. I’d send those pictures to your vet and have him checked out

There are two things that I know of that can cause white spots(but I am not a vet) one is Trench mouth(stomatitis) the other is Thrush(yeast stomatitis). If you want, you could try flushing his mouth with a weak mix-peroxide w about 10x water. But he might need antibiotics. The acne on his chin is usually from drinking water and getting a wet chin.

Could he have bitten his tongue? Do those marks line up with his upper teeth?
Stuffed animals can be dangerous for dogs if they ingest the stuffing or the covering. Keep them where he can't get to them is best.

Funny, was thinking of you last week. Nice to see you back. Little guy sure grew. Still a cutie!

Looks like he bit himself. Try keeping him off the toys n check if it’s going down. Btw is that toy on the floor, what is it made out of? Your missing pieces on it.

It is not a toy on the floor. It is one of my kids sandals he got a hold of. That picture was taken of his BUSTED face!

They do line up with his teeth, and he always has a stuffed animal because he has a suckling habit and it puts him to sleep. But once I notice a hole, I toss it.

Thanks for the info. His chin acne has dissipated and the sores are smaller now. He may have bit himself. So far no signs of anymore.

Good to hear it cleared up... hope it stays that way
