Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Welcome and thanks for asking your question. My name is***** am a licensed veterinarian. I am not set up to make a live call. But, I am happy to answer your question on this thread. First I need to ask you a few questions so that I can be well informed and give you the best advice.
1- Where is the lump located?
2- How big is it?
Friend, in dogs just like in humans lumps could be benign or malignant. If this lump is fast growing the best option is to discuss with your veterinarian about complete surgical removal and submitting the tissue for a biopsy (histopathology) to rule out a malignant tumor. Unfortunately, there is not much I can recommend for you to try at home that will have a significant therapeutic benefit. This is a case where surgery is the best option to treat this growth. If cost is a concern look into your local ASPCA or Shelter where they often offer veterinary services at a lower cost.
