Hello, this is Dr. Linda. I hope I can help with your concerns today.

Is the lump at the junction where the tail meets the body? Does it seem to bother her at all, feel warm, & does she seem to be acting/eating normally?

Thank you.

that’s where it is like a lymph node almost walnut size maybe a little smaller. She’s acting completely normal eating normal and it doesn’t seem to bother her
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
She may be eating a bit less as we were staying at s friends out of town sharing their dog food so maybe not eating as much since it was new and different dog food but she seems fine
