I'm a noob who just found this site so I haven't posted before. My dog is a desexed, pound pup, Bullmastiff X, called Tambo, who is approx. 6 to 6 1/2 yrs old. I have owned him for 4 yrs.
Tonight I gave him a bath as he was extremely smelly from taking bones into his kennel, and I noticed a lump on his back, just before the tail & now I'm worried as to what it may be :-(
He's never had any major health issues, and the only reason he's needed a vet other than general health check was for irritation in the same area that the vet said was Flea allergy. He's had a couple of bouts of that over the past 2 yrs & the meds solved it each time rather quickly. I stopped the meds each time after 2 days of no itching as I don't like the idea of him taking tabs longer than actually required. There were no visible bugs, fleas or anything but the vet said it would only take one bite for him to act like he had a flea circus in the area.
Hoping I can add some photos to this post in case it helps. One of him (full size) & a few of the lump. Does anyone have any thoughts or suggestions to what it may be? Thanks in advance!219761_1691348285449_5611518_o.jpgTambo Lump2.jpgTamboLump4.jpgTamboLump3.jpg
