New puppy and found a bump? Will speak with Vet, but looking for advice

We just got our new puppy last night!!! He is an 11 weeks old AKC registered yellow Labrador retriever and it adjust beautifully! I am concerned however, while he was asleep I was running my finger on his whiskers by his nose and noticed a bump so I lifted his lip and I see a huge bump..........of course I have never seen anything like this before!

Our little baby Charlie was just at the vet this AM for his check up and shots. The pet store we bought him from requires a free visit to a vet within four days to guarantee his 3 year warrant against hereditary and congenital defects. Also included is a 14 day period where any illness with the puppy is fully covered until the dog is considered free of that illness! I did have a fecal test run and the vet said she would call me in the morning, however I am very concerned about this bump..........it seems to be right above that big tooth so maybe it is from chewing and the tooth hitting the gum........kinda like that bump you get on your miggle finger when you write too much?!?!?!?

I took a pic to upload but I don't know how since I only have access to to an iPod to post!!! If someone has seen what I am describing please send me your email so I can send the pic or is there a way to upload a pic from an iPod

I would definitely have another, impartial vet take a look. Pet shop puppies are highly prone to a lot more illnesses than even a shelter dog, because in most cases their puppy mill pups. Usually the "free" vet is being paid to sponsor defective dogs, and pass them even if there is something seriously wrong. Now I'm not saying your dog is defective it's just experience. My sister bought a Petland dog 5 years ago and has had nothing but trouble with the amount of medical issues he has had.

As for the bump, it could be anything from a "doggie" wart, to possibly cancer; for this you need a trustworthy vet.

Good luck, and my prayers are with you and your pup
crock and marbear like this.
