Customer Question
Well my puppy had...

Well my puppy had a lump on the right side of her lower jaw n it's kinda hard....but she isn't letting me pet or touch her in that area at all

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?

Squirmy...she is a staffy and is 15 weeks old

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

Well I have a 2 yrs old fixed male staffy and they get along well....she ran into my kitchen buffet about two weeks ago but showed no signs of pain....but then three days after she started to show some pain when they played...like tugging with their rope
