    Default Matilda has a lump

    As stated in the title, I noticed a tiny lump on Miss Sassy Pants. It is located in her right front pit. At first I thought is was one of her nibbins but I got to thinking, hey, they don't got that far up. It doesn't seem to bother her. Am I being an overreactive mommy??


    Who wouldn't love that face???

    no experience with this, hope shes okay and its nothing. I think I would definately have to take her to the vet and have it checked though.

    Never an over reaction when these things are concerned. My husband says so long as you can grab it and move it, (like it is in the skin I think) it is ok. not that I am an expert. How long has she had it? Cutty had a little bump on his side but I think it was a bite of some sort cuz it disappeared as fast as it appeared.

    I think maybe for about a week. I would offer a pic when I get home but, you can't see it. You can just feel it.

    Being a week I wouldnt stress just yet. Check and see when you get home if you can grab it and move it. Cutty even got a big lump at one point, (no idea how) turned out to be like a blood blister the vet said. Cannot remember what she called it. Anyhow she had to drain the blood out with a needle and it kept filling for a little bit, she drained it 2 or 3 times then it went away. Most likely isnt anything to stress about BUT I would check it when you get home and for sure keep an eye on it. If you are still worried then it cant hurt to go to the vets office.

    A lot of dogs get lipomas (fat deposits) - usually a small, movable, soft mass just under the skin. My brother's dog is an 11-year-old retriever and he has several of these lipomas of varying sizes found all over his body. But, usually, a vet will order a biopsy just to be sure that it's not malignant, even if it's just a lipoma. So yeah, something you definitely want to let your vet know about.

    I personally would not rush, but definitely would let the vet know the next time you are there, my son's dog has a lump/bump on her tail, after testing we know it is a cyst, the vet, (same as mine) will drain in occasionally but it is not life threatening just a marble size cyst.

    I'm with everyone else and just keep an eye on it and let your vet check it the next time you go, unless it starts to get bigger.
