It's hard to tell from the picture but it could be a wart (http://www.marvistavet.com/html/body...as.html)...has she been around other dogs at all? I think it's worth having the vet take a loot at it; a lot of times if they have a characteristic wart appearance the vet will watch it for a couple of weeks (Honey had one over a year ago which went away in about a month). If it looks unusual the vet may want to aspirate it.

Is it on her lip or the part of the gum that's over the bone?

It could just be an inflammation of the gum where your dog hurt itself...maybe send this picture to the vet and see if you need to go in the office to have it checked out? Save a vet bill possibly??
Or do one of those vets online?

Oral papillomatosis maybe? Warts from a wart-causing virus (Canine papilloma virus). Can be passed from dog to dog, but should go away on it's own.

Hopefully that's all it is. I would go to a vet to be sure though.

That does sound more like it, esp. with the tiny white bumps!

Not a vet, but I am POSITIVE that it is "puppy warts." We had them all the time at doggie daycare. They can appear on the lips and gums and also on the eyelids occasionally. They virus is often dormant for 6+ weeks, so they can carry it or get it from dogs with no symptoms by sharing bowls, toys or just wrestling/licking/sniffing. It will go away on its own, but if it starts bugging him or bleeding, talk to the vet about getting it cauterized.

AHHHH....That's such a relief! I will be checking dogs' gums now AND their ears as usual. 3 out of 5 dogs I sat for in the past had ear infections...and I am talking REALLY nasty infections! Good grief owners, check your dogs ears please!!!

It almost looks like she bit her gum on accident and it's healing still. But I'd go with what other people say lol

That is a papilloma wart. Zoe had one 2 years ago. They are super contagious so keep your dog away from other dogs.

My vet removed hers so that she would not be contagious anymore. It's a very simple procedure. They numb the area and zip it off. They did it without putting Zoe under.

Thanks so much!!! I'm thinking a trip to the new vet is in order just in case.

I second the wart. My dog Jazzy would get them all the time, hers would come in her mouth on her eyes and occasionally on her head and back. They'd usually pop, bleed and then go away; very nasty.
