I have a German shepherd border collie mix who has a lump on

Customer Question

I have a German shepherd border collie mix who has a lump on the back of a front knee. I have taken her to a vet and the fluid is clear and yesterday it was drained and look normal. Today it is back and it's still with fluid again about the size it was. Should I take her to a different vet I was just something that will go away.

Please check the photo(s) before uploading to make sure that they're in focus.
