Default My boy Token-

I was rubbing on my gassy, sassy and a little smarty-assy boy this morning, and i found a very hard nodule in his dewlap.


Does anyone have experience with hard nodules in their bassets? This one isn't soft like a cyst or lipoma. It's about the size of a pearl or small marble.



I've called the vet to have a biopsy done, but honestly, I am petrified. He's my boy. I'm trying not to freak out, but failing miserably. I'm not sure what else to say, because i'm sure i sound like an over reacting mom.

You were right to involve your vet BUT try not to panic. My current boy is literally covered in lumps like that and we are not touching them. I have never understood/discovered why some get like this when others don't - I had litter mates where she was also covered and at one point we had them removed until others appeared and we stopped. Her brother had none. I would say she tended to have a thicker more oily coat than him, which is probably why


Rather than put my boy through surgeries, and some are harder than others, I'm prepared to just leave it ..... of course one of them might be a nasty but he's in his 10th year now and (other than right now is having another of his gastric episodes, upchucking everywhere yesterday = vet) otherwise doing ok, considering all his other problems!


I guess you'll have to wait for the results of the biopsy and hope. And remember if it is a nasty and is taken off, he'll probably be fine.
