Tumor?

8 posts in this topic

So last week I was playing with my puppy and found what seemed to be a fatty tumor. It is about a nickel in size and does not seem to attach to the muscle. Rather, just on the under layer of the skin.

It is right around where the micro chip was placed. Could this be scar tissue? It has me very worried!

It does not seem to bother her at all. No change in diet or activiety

How long ago was he micro chipped?

I have seen puppies get a bump in a spot that they got a shot that last for a few weeks.

How old is the dog then?

If it was me I would call your vet and ask him what he thinks.

Tealitup,

How did things check out with Kinsey? We kept Teal's last female "Widgeon" and she had a reaction to her last shot and it was a swollen lump about the size of a dime and lasted about 2-3 weeks. Let me know how she is turning out. I have some pics from our SD trip this year with Teal and Widgeon I will Email you. Hope Santa was good to her grin.gif.

My lab puppy gets these everytime she gets shots. They have all gone away within a week-10 days.

I wouldn't worry.

Hey Chad! Good to hear from you! Kinsey was brought to the vet who thought it was nothing. He then took a needle and got some cells from the tumor.

He came back 10 minutes later and said they were just inflamation cells. Nothing to worry about and it should be gone in a couple of weeks. It is still there but much smaller and seems to be going down.

She has been a great dog. Two weeks ago out pheasant hunting she "got it." We have not been lucky enough to actually get a rooster, but she did manage to catch a hen by the tail feathers. Was a total riot; but the way I look at it is at least she knows what she is looking for.

Then last weekend we went out and we both fell into a creek that was not all the way frozen - about a mile from the truck. The winds were pushing 20-25 mph and snowing. Looking back its the perfect memory of a hunt though.

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
