Customer Question
I've noticed a round...

I've noticed a round flat red type growth on my Jack Russels's leg. Kind of like a flat strawberry birth mark.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Some lumps are serious and some aren't. Let's see what the Veterinarian has to say. What is the dog's name and age?

Mitch and he was a rescue dog, so not entirely sure of age, but must be around 13+.

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about your dog?

No. He's always been healthy, and is healthy now apart from this red growth.

Hello, I'm Dr. Deb and will do my best to help with this concern about Mitch.

How long has the growth been present?

Has it changed since you've noticed it? Gotten larger, for example?

Do you think you could post a picture of it? The following link walks you through the process: http://ww2.justanswer.com/how-do-i-send-photo-or-file-expert

Thanks, Deb
