Is there something wrong with him?

While I was brushing Ramsey's teeth a few minutes ago, I saw this lump-looking thing at the back of his mouth.



You can see the small lump at the back of his mouth... It's white-light yellowish color... I haven't seen this before from the last time I brushed his teeth which would be last Saturday... He eats a high quality diet (ZuPreem Premium Ferret Diet) and I brush his teeth every week. I give him one treat once a week (Usually N-Bone but once in a while Bandits).

This doesn't look healthy to me at all. :/ If I could get a bit of information on what you guys think about this would help a bit. I plan on taking him to the vet if you guys think it's something to be checked out.

My personal opinion here is that any lump/growth in the mouth should be checked by a vet.

I tend to agree with VZ. Could be nothing more than an ulcer, but it never hurts to have it checked out. I've not seen a lump like that on any of my fuzzes.

Yes, please get it checked out by a vet.

I'm amazed how you got this shot though.. and I never knew they had so much teeth (sharp ones too!)

Hoping it's nothing serious!

Their primary diet is meat so they need those little vicious teeth! haha. My boy is very well-mannered and only play bites just like how a dog would so it doesn't hurt.

I schedule an appointment this week... I hope it's nothing serious.
