Customer Question

I have a 13 year old yellow lab that weighs about 90lbs and has hip problems, so it's difficult to take him to vet. He developed a lump on on his back about 1 and half months ago. The lump is now about 2-3 inches high, turned black on top and looks to be rupturing or oozing some. He is still eating like normal and it doesn't seem to bother him.

Hello, this is Dr. Jess. I see that Boss is having some problems with a lump on his back. What does the discharge coming from the lump look like? He is otherwise normal and active? No other issues?
