Pink thing in beardies mouth

Postby JaffaCake » Thu Nov 26, 2020 5:12 am

Hi, sorry about the title, wasnt sure what to call it. Maybe a growth or something?

My beardie has been acting completely normal, nothing out of the blue at all. He opened his mouth earlier and i noticed there was a pink lump near his tongue on one side of his mouth. Its hard to see because it blends in with the colour of his tongue and inside of his mouth but its noticeable in person.

Is this something to be concerned about? Hes been eating/drinking normally and I dont think it seems to bother him at all.

He is 6 years old, he did jump off from the top of his log yesterday in his tank so unsure if he may have hurt his mouth during that. I checked on him and he seemed okay, the drop is considerably small but he is on tile instead of carpet or soft materials

If pic is needed, can you tell me how to post it?

No it posted -- we need Tracie or AHBD to take a look at it and see what they think

It doesn't look too bad, but I'd keep a close eye on the size of it. It's possible he just bit it and it swelled up a bit shouldn't be a huge deal. If he is eating normally that's a good sign. If it starts to get larger or starts to affect his eating, then I'd have a vet check it out.
