View Full Version : Hard Lump

01-02-2009, 07:15 PM
I have a 1 1/2 year old pit-bull mix. He is in great shape and loves to play outside. About 2 weeks ago I notice a lump on his right hip. It is rock hard. It feels like bone. I don't know if this because of an injury he sustained and I didn't catch it or what. It doesn’t effect his walk or his posture. He doesn’t scratch at it and it does not hurt him when we touch it. What I want to know is does anyone think it is serious and will or could it affect him in the long run. Any thoughts or comments will be well appreciated. Thanks.

Sounds like a fat gobual (sp) harmless really, my shepard has on on his back end dispite being in really good shape, but I would take him to the vet just incase, there could be a foriegn body in there or it could be some sort of tumor you never know, it should be seen by a professional vet.
