Knowing abt dogs lumps and bumps and hhat to do if ur dog has a mass under his skin.
Many dogs especially as they begin to grow old they start growing lumps and bumps on the surface of their skin or just under their skin though it happens with young dogs as well.
Growths can be all kinds of things from benign, skin tags, cysts to bug bites or masses, which can be problematic.
It's always best to play it safe
The best thing to do when u see a new lump or bump is to take ur dog to the vet so that ur vet can evaluate the growth.
Here are some tips to help u keep track of those lumps & bumps, and to begin to figure out which ones u might be able to wait on and which you definitely shouldn’t.
1. Using electric clippers or an electric beard trimmer, slowly and carefully remove the fur from around the growth. Use extreme caution with any masses around the eyes, as the clippers or the falling fur can damage the eye.
NEVER use scissors or a razor to remove fur from around any growths on ur dog's body, as u would likely cut his skin.
Use a ruler, or calipers, to measure the size of the growth when you first notice it. Be sure to record the size and note the date and location on ur pet’s body, too.
Remeasure frequently to monitor for growth.
Use a Sharpie marker to trace the outline of the growth. This is a quick and highly visual way to knw if and when a growth starts to increase in size.
The mark will fade over time but in the short term it will help you identify a fast growing mass.
Take a picture of the growth. Be sure to put a ruler or an object of a known and fixed size (such as a coin) next to the growth and in the frame of the picture, so as to better gauge the size later.
When to see ur vet
If the lump is growing rapidly, ulcerating or bleeding, or otherwise causing ur dog discomfort see ur vet asap.
If The lump is purplish-red or darkly colored.
The growth is associated with or near the breast tissue of a female pet see ur vet.
If the growth is on ur dogs ear or nose, or in their mouth see ur vet asap.
If ur pet exhibits a decrease in energy, appetite, or weight coincident with the development or growth of the mass see ur vet.
If ur dog starts vomiting, having diarrhea, or coughing see ur vet.
If ur dog is showing signs of pain see ur vet.
Earlier vet evaluation is always the safest bet. Some lumps could be cancerous.
whatever you do if u fail to see ur vet PLEASE never attempt to remove, squeeze, or cut off a lump urself regardless of the size or location.
