Hello and thank you for your question. I am a Veterinary Nurse with over 15 years experience and I have assisted in the care of many pets with this particular medical concern. It would be my pleasure to assist you today. Is it possible for me to obtain some additional information from you about your companion?1) Do you have a picture of these knots? 2) Do they appear to be mobile under the skin or well attached? 3) How long have they been there? 4) When did Dottie's pain begin?5) Is she walking in an unnatural manner? 6) When did she stop jumping off of the couch and going up stairs?
