Default green swollen tooth

Hey guys, I just got my hedgehog Xena a week ago and as I was giving her a bath I noticed a greenish lump on the right side of her mouth, on the tooth. At first I thought it was a piece of lettuce or something but as I looked closer the side of the mouth seemed a bit swollen and open. It's hard to get a close look because she won't let me anywhere near her mouth but I have no idea what it is. I'm going to the vet for her soon but I just want to know what I should expect? Also the past couple of days she's been occasionally pawing at her mouth before a bath.

It could be an abcessed tooth and the green could be pus or it could be something stuck in her teeth. Only a vet will know for sure. If she's pawing at her mouth then she's uncomfortable and needs to see a vet as soon as possible.

It sounds like an infected tooth to me also. I hope you can get her in ASAP and also I would notify whoever you got her from about this.
Good luck! Please let us know what happens.

Thanks guys will let you know asap. She eats every night and runs on her wheel, and her stool is perfectly fine so hopefully she's not in too much pain until I take her to the vet

Just took her, vet said her tooth was growing the wrong way and needed to be pulled in like 5 weeks, since she'd eating and drinking fine and is still active.

Default why?

Why does the vet want to wait that long to pull the tooth? Anyway, just make sure you follow through with that because it doesn't look good to me. What else did they say? I would want it out sooner rather than later.

I'm not sure why he didnt pull it theb but the vet i went to has 25 years of experience so I hope he knows what he's talking about. I wish he would just have done it then but that's all he really said. I hope it's nothing more serious!
