Lump on Puppy's lip

Hey everyone,
So I have sent a message to my breeder as well but I am wondering if anyone has seen this before. The lump on his limp is hard and about dime sized. He doesn't yelp when I press it but he doesn't seem to like it either. It just appeared within the last day and he has no other symptoms, he is 13 weeks. My vet is not open for 2 days, is it something I should consider an emergency visit for? Thanks and Merry Christmas

Well, you may not realize, but it's a breath of fresh air to see someone contacting their breeder, and contemplating an emergency vet visit, if needed

So often, we get folks on here with puppy problems that are clearly very emergent, and yet we still cannot convince them pup needs to see a vet!

Thank you, for taking such good care of your pup.

Obviously, it's best to trust your gut, but if he's eating, drinking, playing, pooing and peeing normally, and you really can't identify any other symptoms, AND the lump doesn't change in size, density, or appearance, you will likely be fine taking him in a couple days from now.

He didn't get a bite there, did he? From playing/wrestling with any other animal?

Or could he have gotten an insect bite?

My first thought from your thread title was puppy papilloma, but it doesn't look quite right for that, to me--still, this may be all it is--your vet will be able to say for sure or not.

Thanks, I have a lot of trust in my breeder, so I feel good asking her opinion. As for vet's I am sure I am paying for their summer cottage... if my dog sneezes funny I take him in... haha.
It's possible he got bit playing, he is always wrestling with my samoyed, there is not puncture or sore on the outside or inside of the lip which is why I did not jump to that conclusion right away. As for insect bite, I don't think so, we have about 3 feet of snow here, but I guess it's possible. My first thought was abscess or maybe ingrown hair. I will watch it for now as my vet does not open until the 27th but if his behavior changes at all we will be making an emergency visit for sure! Thanks for the advice

Well...I wish sometimes I was a bit less caring... My vet has told me that I was born a worrier and need to give things time, watch for 24hrs!

I was going every week for weighing (still do) but at the same time wanted her to check for his heart, teeth, etc and she never said anything, but a couple of weeks ago I had to call on a sunday for an emergency because he "woke up with a lump" and ended up being where a thick hair is growing (which after a week I saw clearly she was right).
Anyway, she took then the opportunity to tell me that I can't bubble wrap him...

I know what you guys are thinking...but I worry about him because he left his mum so early which I fear may could endanger his development. I'm getting better.

Hi! My 10 week old dobie has the exact same thing, I noticed only a few hours ago and was planning on taking her to the vet in the morning if the swelling didn't subside. I assumed it was an ingrown whisker or something of that nature. Did your vet lance the lump or prescribe any topical treatment? She doesn't seem to be in any pain so I don't won't to over worry, especially if it will go away on its own.

Hi Katelynn, the first post is seven years ago, and I would love to have heard the outcome from the original poster. If you do go to the vet for your puppy, please get back to us and let us know.
I have never encountered something like this in the four Dobermans we have had, so cannot advise. Good luck, just hoping it is nothing.

Look into papilloma (puppy warts). They are very common.

If that is what it is, unless inside the mouth, rarely seem to be a problem.

Oral Papilloma Virus in Dogs

McCoy had a pretty good sized one on his lip for quite a while. His vet offered to remove it, but as it was not bothering him at all, we let it go. As his immune system developed, it disappeared completely.

Ingrown Whisker?

New to this, might be posting in wrong area. Our puppy (almost 3 months) has a perfectly round lump on her cheek right where her whisker would grow. No sore inside the mouth, am I to assume it is a ingrown whisker? Was not there one day and the next it was.
