Weird Lumpy Thing


Recommended Posts

Rhemus (who is about to turn 12 :confetti:clap:confetti ) has a weird thing that just showed up on his back between his hip bones. I'm a nurse, and it feels just a like a big, fat, juicy vein. Except it comes out on one side of his spine, goes over it, and then dives back into the underlying tissue. OR, it could be like a little tumor or lump. Exept that it feels just like a vein.


He is a very, very thin houndie-he eats well and his bloodwork (full senior panel plus thyroid plus TBD) is all normal. Except for his teeth--he's missing about 20 of them, and the ones he has left are not great--he's very healthy. He's just one of those skinny old men. Anyway it may be that he's just so thin I'm able to notice things more. It isn't painful to him.


I'm just wondering if anyone's ever seen anythng like that before? :dunno

I'll be calling his vet later to see what he thinks.

I'll be anxious to hear what the vet says.

From Wisconsin -- It's Nancy, Bob, Carla, June Bug and our newby Skorch.... along with Buffy. She's the little hound that meows.

With loving memorials to K.C., Barko and Major Turn -- all playing at the bridge.
