This we noticed a few days ago when brushing her, my retriever has this odd looking growth, I can easily move it, I attached a photo of the top and bottom of it. Top photo is the top of it, and the bottom photo is what the bottom of it looks like.

My other retriever has had tumours in the last from her apoquel a couple years ago, this does NOT look or feel what the tumour on my other dog felt like. This is something different.
The retrievers also have cysts that are NOT harmful, but this breed it’s common for cysts, but this is definitely different.

Is this a skin tag, or wart????

It’s kind of soft, it’s NOT hard.


What does it look like to you all??

Have any of you seen something like this and knows what it is????
This is the same dog I asked about the possible broken tooth, she is the healthiest of all my 3 dogs.

Please anyone know what this is???

Probably needs to have a biopsy.

Looks like papilloma, maybe?

@2BullyMama you know this….has that name we keep looking for…….
You know exactly what this is??

I haven’t seen this kind of growth before and I’m concerned. She is the healthiest of all my dogs, Luna is not doing well, I sure hope nothing serious is wrong with Sadey, this and the tooth in the other thread, so frustrating!

Is this something serious @2BullyMama what is this??

Thank you for your response.

The problem with Sadey is we don’t want to sedate her cause she has kidney disease, and she didn’t come out of anesthesia from her spay well.

I might see if my other vet, if she will maybe cut it off and stitch it up WITHOUT sedating her if we hold her.

What do you think of her Damaged Tooth in my other thread(see photo in that thread), I am nervous about any new growth in my dogs, but also cause my other golden retriever(8.5 years old) she was diagnosed with Bladder Cancer 1 month ago unfortunately(her dad passed from cancer at age 7, so the genetics is the cause as well as the apoquel she used to be on but she hasn’t had it for over 2 years now).

This retriever that has this tooth issue and this growth is only 7 years(she just turned 7 a week ago), she is the healthiest of all the dogs.

I do want to know exactly what it is, but I want your opinions on this too, I also hope we can somehow get it removed and biopsy WITHOUT sedating her.

Histiocytoma. Jax has had several of them and they have never been black. Any kind of lump or bump should be looked at by a vet.

A biopsy really should be done and doing it without sedation just sounds beyond painful. They can sedate without going under full anesthesia. But in any event, a vet trip is warranted.

Thank you very much for your response!

Is that Histiocytoma tumour??

Ok I will see when we can make a appointment for Sadey. Won’t the sedation effect her kidneys since she has kidney disease??

What do you think of her tooth in my other thread?? Does it look broken to you, or is it just a slab fracture? The top piece I can move, but the tooth itself I can’t move.

All bumps are pretty much tumors. A histiocytoma is benign and usually absorbs and goes away on its own but I have never seen a black one before.

As far as sedation and kidneys goes, that is a conversation best to have with your vet. The tooth issue might not turn out to be a big deal and something she can live with just fine. But again, have your vet take a look.

That mole would be called a melanocytoma, because it is black. Many are non cancerous, but everyone is right-it needs to be checked.

So you think it’s a mole or a Tumour??

I will have it checked, it’s a matter of finding the time, it’s usually takes weeks to get a vet appointment here cause they are always fully booked!

LOL... hysto-thingy! @Cbrugs knows the real name, I have total brain block on the name for some reason, But if it is that, the body will reabsorb it and it is harmless.
