Bump on my dogs rear leg.

Postby drider » Thu Oct 07, 2010 7:59 pm

Hi all,

My year old pit bull has a small dime size bump/lump on her rear leg. Right where the 'ball of her elbow on her rear leg/foot. I hope you guys understand, it does not seem to bother her much, it's clear to the touch when I press it. Any suggestions other than keeping an eye on it or take her to the vet? What could it be?

It could be Hives, very common thing do to allergies most likely.
I would see what gives the allergic reaction if possible, it's nothing serious but if you keep feeding her or keeping her in the environment that the dog is allergic to can become serious and will need a vet to intervene.
Can you post pictures?

This is like extreme one of two is ok but when the whole dog is cover by them vet visit.

I'm thinking it sounds like a histiocytoma. But your vet would obviously know better. They are common in puppies. Been through it twice, both just went away, but GET IT CHECKED OUT!

Definitely not hives, I'll give it this weekend to see if it goes down in size. I always consider the benefits over the risk even in a minor surgical procedure. Thanks pitbull forum!
