I have a 1.5 year old Maine Coon cat.
One of the cat's upper fangs appears to be poking a hole in its lower lip. Only the right side lip has a hole in it; the left side has a small bump instead of a hole.
I pulled the lower lip away from the fang for the purpose of this photo. Normally, the fang sits right in the hole in the lip.
I pulled the cat's upper lip back for the purpose of this photo.
Is there a technical name for when a fang pokes a hole in a lip, and can it cause health problems for cats?
The hole in the lip eventually just went away.
