    Default My baby bulldog has a swollen bump, help!

    Hello friends! Thank God I have this site to come to!! My baby Frank, 16 weeks now, has a swollen bump on his left side, right by the ribs. We just noticed it today. It seems to be under the skin, loose, but hard to the touch and it doesn't hurt!! He seems to be normal and playful. I just called his vet and she says it could be a delayed reaction to the rabies shot that was given to him near that spot or that he hit himself and to rub Cofal twice a day on the area which I already did. But that shot was given to him 3 weeks ago and he seemed fine all this time...can that be possible? I brush him and clean him 2 times a day and hadn't noticed it until this morning, this is so strange . I will take him to vet office tomorrow, but prying it is nothing to worry . Anyone has seen this before?

    Bella used to get bumps, but they never seemed to bother her. Could be a bug bite or something... If he doesn't seem to be in pain I wouldn't panic. Keep us posted!!!

    After 3 weeks, I would not think it to be a delayed reaction to the shot.... could be a bug bite. But, please let us know what the vet says and keep us posted.

    I would say bug bite too, keep an eye on it and if still worrying you a visit to vet would help. I know it always makes me feel better just to be on the safe side.

    Like the others have said it sounds like a bug bite. Harlea has had a few mosquito bites and after a day or so they are hard like you described. If you are in a heavy mosquito area you can get 6 lemons and cut them in half. Bring 1 quart of water to a boil and add the lemons. Turn the heat off and let the lemons steep for 2 hours. Strain the water in to a spray bottle and you have a natural bug repellant for your bully. Just spray on when you go outside. it makes the smell lemony fresh to boot.
    Bulldogs are like potato chips. You just can't stop with one.

    Thanks @ddnene, @Harleyleeotis12321, @2BullyMama, @LynnA and @Marine9 for sharing your advises. Yes I am in a heavy mosquito area, tropical and humid. Love the natural repellant recipe.
    The Vet saw Frank yesterday and she still thinks is a delayed reaction to the rabies shot (3 weeks ago). Can you believe it? She drained the bump with a needle and liquid came out. She said he was developing a cyst and gave him a natural medicine to help it heal, Enzimol, an anti inflamatory enzyme made from papaya for dogs and cats. I can still feel there is something there but much less. I hope it goes away soon and that the Vet is right. I am still a little stressed...

    Wow... 3 wk delay, really? Gotta ask my vet about that next time I am in the office.

    Hugs to you both -- hope it is just a nothing cyst and goes away quickly
