Hello Sally, thanks for the quick response. I think we have a slight mis-understanding in that Digby has been eating but wouldnt look at his dinner today but in the last ten minutes he has eaten it. The lump is hard but doesnt appear to bother him even if I squeeze it.It does move but the two lumps on his jowels were hard but have now softened a little which I think made him feel like eating. The trauma thing is interesting as he is blind so may have walked into something. Anyway we will visit the Vet's tomorrow and see what they diagnose. Regards, XXXXX XXXXX
Hello Sally, shortly after our last conversation the lump burst and watery blood oozed from what looked like dog teeth marks under the lump which had'nt been visible before. As we are well fenced to keep our four dogs in I can only assume that a fox or cat or similar creature had bitten him but I dont know for sure.Our nearest neighbours are 400 yards away so I dont think it was a cat. Anyway the lump has nearly gone now, he is eating everything put before him but is still feeling a bit sorry for himself,although first in line to go round the field. Thankyou very much for your help,you are now bookmarked for future assistance. Regards, Andrew Dugan.
Hello Sally, did'nt you get the message I sent this morning?
