Customer Question
My 1 year old...

My 1 year old dog has a large lump in her arm pit. it does pain her if i press it. but aside from that, she is acting completely normal.

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?

Harley.

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

No. she seems completely health. she is a healthy weight, very active, eating and drinking normally. I noticed the lump about a week ago. it seems to have grown slightly over the last week.

I have pictures. The lump is oval shaped, it is firm, but I can press it and it will move slightly. It does not feel liquid filled, but it doesn't feel fully solid either. The oval is about the size of a quarter now. It only moves when pressed, but goes right back into place when I take my thumb away. And it does bother her only when pressed. She seems fine and playful otherwise and is not avoiding playing or rough housing.

I won't allow me to send the other picture. :/
