Bump on Jax’s face. It’s gotten bigger and is now red. I leave for Florida for a week on Friday so I have a vet appointment for Thursday for peace of mind and just in case.

Pimple? Duke gets that then it burst. Once in a while he’ll get a big one. Nyala also licks his face till no tomorrow. He has a big one between his fold but going down now. I use paper towels as it absorbs better. I also put bag balm in his fold. Works well.

I honestly don’t think Jax has ever had a pimple. This is on the side of his face. If I wasn’t going out of town, I’d probably just keep my eye on it a little more but if it is something more and something happened while I was gone, I’d never forgive myself.

Oh gosh... hopefully it's just a pimple. Our bully Bella used to get those on her face... keeping my fingers crossed for good news!!!

No no you’re doing right. Peace of mind is better than a what if...

Looks like a hysto-thingy, but better to check since you are going away

That is my thought as well but I'd rather be safe than sorry. Plus I have seen some recent posts on FB groups about mast cell tumors so of course my mind went to that. I don't want to be worried while on vacation so a $50 vet visit will give me peace of mind (hopefully).

Always better to be safe, fingers crossed it’s nothing to be concerned about.

[MENTION=16619]Cbrugs[/MENTION]. Duke’s face is healing now. As you see the pimples n Nyala’s consisting licking Duke’s face off was worst on one side of his face. Plus white face pigmentation don’t help. I think little Jax is either pimple or like Christine say “hysto-thingy”

Louie had a pimple the other day that went away after just a couple days. Normally I wouldn't be too concerned but it has grown since last week and gotten red so I will just feel better about having him seen before I go on vacation.
