Hi, She is a Rat Terrior, 8 1/2 yrs old. She's had this maybe since January but seems to be getting worse. Thought at first it was because of her favorite toy which had gotten pretty beat up, dirty, and torn, took it away, hoping that would help. Pulling on the lead does bring it on, but it seems like any kind of excitement does as well. She doesn't bring anything up, seems like she wants to though. Pants a lot during exercise, but she doesn't get a lot and is very excited to go for walks etc. She has a lump under her left foreleg, breast area. Otherwise she seems fine, healthy, active, alert. I know I should take her in and should have a while ago, but I'm laid off of work and not sure I can afford too much in treatment of her, although I love her very much. Any possible ideas would be very much appreciated
