Lumps and bumps: How to find one, and why it may not mean cancer

We've all heard to beware lumps and bumps. Some of you probably check yourself for them periodically (and if you aren't, you should).

But are you checking your dog?

It's true not all lumps and bumps are dangerous, but if you find one on your dog, you really should take your dog to the doctor.

So how do you check?

On, Dr. Jodie Gruenstern explains how to check a dog for a lump, and what to look for with a helpful video. You can find that video HERE. 

Even if you find a lump and it turns out to be benign, that could change over time. It's important to know how to monitor it yourself. It's as simple as petting your dog. And remember, if you find one, you may find more, especially if it's a lipoma.

Dr. Jodie will also explain how to remove it.

Now, should it turn out your dog has cancer, you can get help, a sympathetic shoulder to cry on, through Pet360.
