    Could it be a microchip, sometimes you can feel them?

    i was just thinking could it be a bite or a sting.i have just had a look and i cant see any puncture wounds and if it was surely it would be sore.

    Hi!

    This sounds just like what happened a few weeks ago with Mum and Dad's girl Tilly, we found a lump, it didn't respond to anti-biotics so they operated to remove it. It was benign thankfully and the vets believe she stuck herself on a rose thorn or similar and this was the reaction to it, just pure bad luck that it din't go down with the anti-biotics was all!

    I know it sounds difficult but try not to worry about it too much unless it gets noticebly larger or reddened and feeling hot, let us know how you go on at the vets won't you?

    How big is the lump, what is its texture & what part of the neck is it on. Lots of things in necks that can cause lumps eg lymph nodes, blocked salivary glands etc. In that area, I would certainly get a vet to take a look at it.

    We all knolw that's my line - Go to your Vet!!!

    I found a small lump on Sasha a week or so ago. I had the vet check it while she was boarding and told him to do a needle aspirate if he thought it was necessary. When Bubba picked the girls up today the vet said that it was more like a pimple and he and squeezed it and it had gone away. Since Wallis has that fibrosarcoma I'm really paranoid about those things.

    It could be as innocent as a sebaceous cyst (a cyst in the oil gland in her skin) but if there is any question in your mind please have her seen.

    Let us know what you find out.

    my boyfriends parent's dog was starting to grow what looked kinda like a unicorn horn on the top of her head and they did a biopsy on it to see what it was. it wasn't anything harmful, but it's always better to know. then the next time she was in for a dental, they removed it. i think it ended up just being fat or something on her scull. but i would have it check out because there are many things that i'm sure it could be. i hope it's nothing serious.

    good luck!
