Mouth ulcers or growth?

Hello everyone, Preston my 2 yr bully has recently developed strange white growths on the inside of his lips

they grew very very fast, over what I think was 7 or 8 days.  

We are off to the vet today at 3 but wondered if you could advise me, as most of you have more experience than I.

Warts maybe?

Let us know what the vet says.

I think canine oral papilloma virus...

Looks like what Molly had when she was about 8 months old.  It is not dangerous. Puppies usually get them due to developing immune sysems and they spread from dog to dog easily I think.  The vet lasered them off when she was getting spayed but otherwise I think he said to let them run their course.  She had a lot of them in her mouth.
