Strange growth inside mouth

I just discovered that my young dog (1 yr old male mini schnauzer) has some very strange grey growths on the inside of his cheek. Does anyone know what these might be? I will be taking him to the vet ASAP, but if anyone has any ideas, I'd appreciate it. Thanks.

Bump.

Not trying to be obnoxious by bumping my own thread, but I'm really worried...

With any kind of growths that suddenly appear I would go see a vet. They can also do tests to figure out what it is if they don't know off hand.

It's good that you are having him checked out, as many oral growths can be bad news and only a vet can really tell you what they are. That said, it's really hard to see the growth in your pic, but given your dog's young age, maybe do the growths resemble these?

Good luck with the visit, hopefully they're nothing to worry about!

Initially I didn't think it looked like papilloma, because I wouldn't describe it as cauliflower like. But the third article you posted has a picture of a dog with a wart that reminds me of what is going on in my dogs mouth (second picture in article).

All of the articles say that a dog's immune system will fight it off, but it can take months. Would this be the best course, or should I pursue antibiotics?

Also, it is spread through spit, so shared toys and water bowls, or play fighting. How can I possibly keep my dog from spreading it to my other dog?
