A growth on Gums between teeth

Kya has a sore on his gums which looks like a soft tissue growth - has anyone experienced this and if so what treatment is available?

I would recommend a trip to your vet to have it checked out.
Many oral lesions are benign (epulis, gum hyperplasia), but cancerous oral tumors (like malignant melanomas) can be seen. Dobes are more predisposed to melanomas than some other breeds and these are aggressive tumors, so it's best to have your vet look.

Good luck w/ your dog.

Dakota had a bump appear on his gum. That suck was really fast growing. One day it wasn't there, a short time later it turned into a large grwoth. Vet had to operate and remove it. Goodnews was that it was benign, See the vet please!
