Saphire It was not malignant. I am in Ontario where vetting is costly. It was very expensive due to his size and resulting cost of anesthesia. $1200 with an additional $300 to neuter at the same time.

How big did you let it get before removing it?

Bump on gum: vet said don't worry. Thoughts?

My vet said not to worry about it unless he can't eat or is in pain because removing something like that from the gums often causes a lot of bleeding...

Thoughts?
