BHRSC - Finding Homes for Loving Bassets
my basset has had several of these, as long as they are soft and not infected, there is probably nothing to worry about.
I've (6) of them removed, with no problems.
Hi, I have had lumps to deal with on my Oscar. He had one on his shoulder and one on his belly. I was told to just keep an eye on them and if they didn't bother him and could be rotated around-no problem. Well, he still has the little one on the shoulder but the one on his underbelly blossomed over a weekend into a "thing" and he had to have it surgically excised followed up with a course of antibiotics-about 500.00 in all. It had become infected apparantly according to the vet. I now notice that area is nice and smooth but he is developing a little bump near that area but neither of the little bumps are bothering him so I keep an eye on them and pray they stay tiny. If this is any help-I hope so. My understanding when first inquiring to this site re bumps and lumps and then to the vet that these are quite common on our Bassets. Best wishes for your doggy. Hope this helps.
You need to go to the vet to have a check. That lump could be something.
