Common Questions and Answers about Lump on dog's paw


Avatar m tn But my sweetie still is in pain and limps after exercise. Poor guy. He still has a lump on the bottom left corner of his paw that is sore upon touch. He squeals and doesn't want me to touch it.! What should I do!
375103 tn?1199227274 (everything you discribed was right on the mark)She is a cocker spaniel and I am always cleaning her ears, (every 4 to 5 days at least). And the lump that formed on her ear flap is about the size of a half dollar. Thank god I found it on a routine ear cleaning. But it got big just that fast. I took her to the vet this morning. And tomorrow, they are going to do sugery on her ear. She is my baby, and she gets sick so fast. So, I'm going to take care of this quickly.
Avatar n tn my 10-yr-old JRT had small scab on underside of ear flap a while back, a couple days ago I noticed a dime-size lump, today it is size of quarter and noticeably thickened. Before I try to find a new vet would respectfully request of Dr. Cheng some general information about what might be going on. I DREAD cancer as I know everyone does. I'm not rich and have to get as much education on this topic before going to a vet.
Avatar n tn This one is on her chest, just in front of her armpit? Paw pit? That one is on sort of a stem and it's fast appearance has the vet concerned. So today I'm trying to read up on all this and everything I see suggests to NOT remove them. Same as my original vet said. Deal with infections if and when they happen. So now I'm thinking of asking to not remove the one on her back or head. Still we should deal with that dangling one. At least find out for sure that it's not cancer.
Avatar f tn Hi Everyone..... This is one of the most difficult things I've ever had to deal with. My beloved Gypsy is dying of kidney failure. Gypsy is a Jack Russell Terrier and she turned 18...yes 18...on Christmas Day. It's just so hard to know when it is "time." I prayed and prayed that she would give us one final parting gift and die on her own in her sleep...but she is SUCH a fighter and refused to surrender to this thing.
Avatar m tn My dog (shepherd/husky mix, 73 pounds, 12 years old) began to have grand mal seizures last week. He had two seizures, one on Sunday and one on Monday, at almost exactly the same time in the evening. After the second seizure, the vet put him on phenobarbital (97 mg/2x per day). He's been on it for five days now and is still pretty out of it. He is extremely lethargic (sleeps most of the day), has coordination problems, and weakness in his hind end. He walks veeery slowly.
1405176 tn?1281137777 That evening, he sort of declined to go on a walk with our son, so he tried again in the morning when it was cooler, but the dog did not want to go then either. I took him for a walk in the afternoon, hoping he was feeling better (this is the 2nd day since he didn't eat dinner), and he went very slowly around the block, but peed and had a bowel movement. That night he started labored breathing, we took him to the ER, and he died in our arms.
Avatar m tn Prior to this, the only time she has ever cried from pain was when I accidentally closed the door on her tail. It's not a constant moan, but somewhat frequent throughout the night or in the evening when we are watching tv. While upright she appears fine and not in pain, she plays and runs as much as usual, so much so that people still think she is a puppy even though she is over ten. I've been to the vet probably ten times in the past six weeks or so.
Avatar f tn The vomiting is so awful to watch in the end as it just goes on and on and on... There are many anti emetic meds to try. Has your vet not prescribed anything? Reglan (metoclopromadine) is a very cheap medication, unfortunately, it is also metabolized in the kidneys, so a too high dose results in toxic levels in the blood. My husband and I discovered that completely bypassing the GI tract by using reglan injections worked much better in the end.
203342 tn?1328740807 He has trouble with his back legs a lot now just suddenly giving out especially on stairs. He struggles to get up if he's been laying down for awhile. I also don't think he sees or hears as well as he used to. He's overweight which seems to partly go with the Cushings. We have him on a low-fat diet and it doesn't seem to help much. I try to walk him but he tires out easily and I wind up having to carry him home because he'll sit down and refuse to walk anymore!
