Mouth Sore..ugh

Hey guys. I just noticed today that my guy has an issue with his lip area. It's like it came on overnight or something.

Is this known as mouth rot? Something else? I'm gonna see if I can get into the vet on Monday but was curious what you guys thought. I feel terrible for him.

Yeah, it'd be almost impossible to be a burn. It's just crazy to me how quickly it's come on.

Looks like mouth rot has been there for a bit... :( I find it happens more in panthers than other species. Is it just me?
It definitely looks that way. But I can assure you it wasn't there a few days ago. It just doesn't make sense.

I'll be hopefully getting him into a vet tomorrow. For now I've been putting some Betadine on it. He did eat a few roaches today, so that's good at least.

Not sure how this happened. I have all the proper lighting (quad fixture from Light Your Reptiles). Mist King system, so humidity is fine. I gutload the crickets/roaches like I should. I dust them before feeding.

I feel I've failed somewhere, tho. :( With antibiotics, can this be 100% healed?

It happens. It’s not you at all imo. There are risks even if you do 100% right. Like us humans catch flu and stuff.
And yess it’s 100% curable with treatment. You just gotta catch it fast and treat fast.
I’m sure he’ll be fine :)
