Question My 13 yr old female dachshund (spayed) had a lump (quarter size) removed last year after observing it for a couple of years and was diagnosed as a fatty tumor. Earlier this month she had her teeth cleaned and what it seems overnight a golf sized lump appeared on her right hip area. I took her to the Vet and they said it could be from where they gave her a shot and provided some steroids/anti-flammatory medication - this was two weeks ago. Tonight I noticed another lump near her spine, a little above the other lump. She doesn't seem like she is in pain, eats and runs around, but I am worried Any insight as to what this may be would be greatly appreciated. Thank-you!
Answer We have older dogs with fatty tumors. I was told they were harmless but the hip lump would not develop that fast that I know of. If that lump is gone, it might have been shots but I would worry too. I would take her to the vet and if you do not get a good answer, get another opinion. You can also use internet for talking to a vet.
