Lump?

Found a lump, 1 inchx 1 inch on kodaks right side, just below the ribs. I've heard of older dogs getting cysts but not puppys. Anyone have this problem? Getting a little nervous

Sorry, I can't help as far as the lump is concerned except to say if it were me, I'd probably want the vet to check it out.

But I saw your pup's name, and wanted to tell you that my pup, Kodi, is "Starborn Kodak Moment". They sure fit their names, don't they!

Welcome to the Forum........Bangs and bites can cause swelling or bumps. Have Your vet take the worry out of the lump.

My Kodi has a lump right in the middle of his chest. Right now it appears to be nothing, hasn't grown and is soft. We're watching it.

Hi:

My vet discovered a lump on Racquet's tummy when he was 12 weeks.

My vet removed it at six months when he was neutered and I had to follow up with an ultra sound and see an internist and cancer specialist because it was a very unusual cyst coming from the bladder at birth.
I am sure your vet will give you excellent advice.

Elayne and Racquet ( he will be 3 in Feb.)

Thanks for yalls advice. He was neutered last Tuesday and I found a forum on here about the rabies shot. I'm thinking that might be where they gave him all his shots but it's above his thigh-too high for an IM injection unless they missed the spot?!?

goodnews! the vet said the lump/knot was from the rabies shot and his other vaccinations he got last week...and i checked his bloodwork (he was neutered dec.1st-one of his testes didnt drop-even after a year-was in the muscle)and all of it is normal!
so baby boy is healthy and happy
