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

      So, what was YOUR ice show score of the day!? I'm heading down on Sunday to see what scraps I can dig up. Absolutely more excited than I should be considering the only ice I've seen so far is the kind that fits in a glass..

      Seeing it's only your second year find buddy to go with as rock said. I even bring a second set of dry clothes and footwear. I am to big mess with thin ice I need 6 inches as rick said early varies so much so some where there is half as much ice.    Safety gear check include ice cleats as i have seen enough broken arms happen. Check your gear test the vexilar hook it up and turn it on to see if it runs or just hook up the charger. I use the drill plate so I charge all my batteries and with blade protecter on I make sure it works. My little sled is ready to haul my gear.    I go light during early ice so fill so fill up my plactics container and restock my jig boxes. Make sure my set ups have new line and pick my favorite set ups to take with. I can add some photos later
