Hello and thank you for your question. I am a Veterinary Nurse with over 15 years experience and I have assisted in the care of many pets with this particular medical concern. It would be my pleasure to assist you today. Is it possible for me to obtain some additional information from you about your companion?

1) Where are these lumps located? Can you share a picture with someone pointing to their locations specifically?
2) When did you first see them?
3) What breed is Ozzy?
4) Has he ever had a sedated dental cleaning?
5) When did this begin?
