He has recently developed a hard raised, black scab like growth on his back. It is shaped like a lopsided bow tie with one side much bigger than the other. It is two inches long and 1 inch across at the widest part.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Some lumps are serious and some aren't. Let's see what the Veterinarian has to say. What is the dog's name?Customer: BossJA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Boss?Customer: Lot's...He is five years old. About 2 years ago he started having trouble swallowing water. It has continued to get worse. I have to feed him water through a large syringe while holding him in an upright position. He usually chokes after about one a quarter of an ounce. I stop and massage his neck and throat until he stops and then give him another drink. Usually I let him have about a half ounce at a time but feed him water every hour. He is able to keep it down on a good day but most days he will gag and spit up the water once or twice. On bad days he grinds his teeth for at least an hour. I have also noticed he is losing his sight.JA: OK. Got it.
