Customer Question
I have a 10...

I have a 10 month old English mastiff who has started to get some large bumps under the fur. At first I thought with the hot weather that he was shedding funny but the more I brush it doesn't change.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. What is the dog's name?

Hank

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

No he's healthy
