Just Noticed A Hard Lump On Jaspers Stomach By His Rib CAge There Isnt One On The Otherside It About 2 x Walnut Size Its Hard I've Researched A Bit It may Possibly Be A Fat Build Up Or Something But Just Incase Anyone Else Knows What It Is , I Have Traced It On Paper And I Will Do Tomorow And The Next Day We Are Taking Him To The Vets On Monday ( Tracing It Too See If It Gets ANy Bigger )
if you can get hold of the lump and move it around under the skin then its likely that its just a cyst. my sisters dog has one and its huge but doesnt cause him any discomfort. let us know how it goes at the vets xx
Dogs can get lots of lipomas (fatty lumps) - they look worse than they are - One of my greyhounds, Jet, has had four or five removed in recent years, although you can leave them if they're not causing any problems.
Also - some dogs (certainly greyhounds) have a 'floating' extra rib - could it be that maybe?
Sorry I Havent Been Online , Well He Was Really Good And The Vet Was Suprised That He Diddnt Need To Be Muzzled And Everything ( Mostly People Leave There Dogs Chained Up And Feed Them Scr@ps And Occaisionally Remember To Give Them Water Oh And Then They Wonder Why There DOg Bites At People And Stuff ... Its Real Occasional That There Is A Turkish Family Who Has A Actually PET Dog Who Lives In The House And Such ... ) He Had Some Blood Taken ( He Struggled A Little But Was Fine ) And We Just Waited In The Vet For About 10 Mins While The Blood Test Thingy Was SPinning In The Machine And Then The Vet Told Us It Was Nothing To Worry About And The Lump Is Just Fat With Water Inside It And Its Common And Should Go Away Itself In A Few Weeks But He Was Suprised Jasper Didnt Have High Chlosrestile ( I Have Nooo Idea How To Spell It ) In His Blood And He Asked What Are We Feeding Him And We Said Pedigree Light Adult And He Said That Its A Good Company In England Because Of The Weather It Gives Them A Little Bit Of Fat To Keep Them Warm But In Turkey Its Hot And Everything So Were Switching To Hills ( Science Plan ) Anyone Heard Of It Is It Really Good And Stuff Just Wondering But Yup Jasper Is Fine And All Is Good ! Thanks Everyone For The Info And Everything
Sad how dogs are treated over in Turkey, but great news that your own Jasper is fine. Worry over. That's onteresting about the fat in the dog food. Makes sense though but I would never have thought about it ;D
