Hello,

So I have just noticed my rat shadow has a smallish lump on the side off her mouth with what appears to be a little bite mark from something like mites. She also had a unusual growth like spot on her body. Please see pictures. Can anyone offer advice or their opinion on what it could be and if I need to go to the vets.

Many thanks.

The lump on her body looks like it could be a cyst which usually isn't serious and the lump on her mouth looks like an injury of sone sort that's caused swelling maybe? Anyway, I'd definitely take her to the vet if the lumps don't go down.

How old is your girl?
Get your nose right into that lump by her mouth and sniff for infection. Could be a small abscess but you may also want to check her teeth to make sure none are growing crooked and piercing her flesh.
