Customer Question
I have a 2...

I have a 2 week old pitbull/ridgeback puppy with a lump on the top of his neck

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 Pitbull's name?

Did not name him yet

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the puppy?

Not at the moment he is well taken cared of by his mom
