  • It could be anything from a reaction to an insect bit, a wart or even a tumor. There are many types of tumors though it could just be a benign fatty growth. That is very common. Usually though they are not bothered by tumors. Having the vet look at it would be a good idea.

  • I noticed yesterday our puppy had a lump on his tummy, took him to the vet as it looked like a tiny splinter was sticking out of the lump. I expected it was a bit of wood or a thorn from running through the brambles and bushes out on walks. Vet said it was a tick that had died as he is wormed etc. He had a reaction to it and that is why there was a lump. I would take him to the vet...you never know what you are messing with and it is always better to get them checked over.

  • I called to make the appointment and was advised to wait another few days if its not gone down then bring him Monday as long as he is walking and not showing pain
