My cat had a swollen bottom lip, only at the front a week ago. I read it was likely just feline acne, washed his bowls out thoroughly, hoping that would help clear it up.
Having been away a few days, I come home today, and it's much more red, even appears to be bleeding a little, and the one side has swollen up and his tooth there is clamping into it.
He's 1.5 years old.
Here are two pictures of it:
I'm hoping to get him to my vet early next week, but was hoping someone might be familiar with what this is, to reassure me it's nothing too serious.
