Issues at tip of mouth


Avid Member
My 4-5 month old female Sambava has some darkening at the tip of her mouth and potentially a small amount of inflammation. It seems likely that the darkness was the result of friction between the tip of her mouth/lip with the fabric of the bag she was in, the fibers themselves being relatively coarse. I have included some pictures of her mouth from differing angles, just want to see if you agree with me or think that it may potentially be something more serious.

Just to help it heal and prevent infection, dab some OTC Polysporin or triple antibiotic ointment on the sore. Don't use anything that has a pain reliever added.

Monitor this carefully and make sure there is no "unseen" damage inside causing the problem. Mouth problems can go undetected until damage is already done and then signs appear on the outside.
