Bump on dog's nose

3 posts in this topic

My 2 1/2 year old lab picked up 2 bumps in the last week or so . 1 is on her nose, the other is on her head. They are about the size of a quarter in diameter, and maybe 1/2" tall. They have not lost any hair. They feel like they may be filled with a fluid or blood of some sort. The last hunting trip I had her on was Nov. 15th-18th in South Dakota. Could it maybe be from hitting a fence or a thistle or something? There is nothing visible as far as a cut or puncture.

I just thought I'd post a follow up for everyone.

I took my dog to the vet and it looks like it may be blastomycosis. The 2 bumps were filled with blood and a substantial infection. At this time the infection hasn't spread to the rest of her body. The vet sent out bloodwork today and we should have a full diagnosis at the end of the week.

Good Luck to you and your pup Lil Ripper. Keep us tuned in to how the treatment goes. Good thing you caught it early... blasto is not fun to deal with from what I've been told.

Good Luck!

Ken

      You are paying for it one way or another it is worked in the rental fee or you pay at the road I guess its a matter of preference. Places I go at milacs always had the road pass "included" I think when I rented from up north rental on red I had to buy a pass going out of rogers.   Beacon Harbor it was included

      Fun day today fishing with Rick G and Jim Uran. Caught a lot of fish and we kept some nice ones for the tummy   Rick got biggest at 12 3/8.  And we got into some neat looking party crappies also. LOL  @Rick G  @Jim Uran   Hopped in the shower as soon as I got home to warm my wet arse up. Sleet and snowy day. Enjoying a glass of Pinot Noir right now and fish fry time Thursday night. THX for the maple syrup Jim ! !

      I went out of fish lake and with my leg,  found a hole just a bit smaller than a man hole, right in the middle of a well traveled and plowed road. I Informed the folks at the high banks about it so hope they marked it. I also found several other holes from old holes widened to around 12". Im done driving for the year. If I had a house out there I would be getting it off ASAP.
