My smallest female albino retic (11ft) has what looks to be a small lump in her gums. I went to feed her Friday and yesterday (Sat) and both days she refused food. As she is usually a pig, this is very unusual for her, so I took the rabbit out and watched her closely. As she was coming towards me I noticed that her right front lips were slightly seperated. So with my wife's assistance I took her out and peeled her upper right lip back. There was/is what appears to be a blister in her upper gums where her foreward-most tooth is. There is no sore or infection, just a clear, marble sized blister. I tried to gently pop it, but it wouldn't pop easily and so I left it alone. So to those that may have seen this before, is this what I assume it is? Is it just a mild liquid filled infection from her own tooth peircing her gums? Will it likely go away in short time if left alone? It obviously doesn't pain her as she never flinched even once when I was attempting to pop it. I would call my vet, but she's off until Wednesday. (Why do these things always happen when my vet is away??) So any advise on this is welcomed. Thanks in advance.
