    DefaultTaking Sam in for a lump check tomorrow - UPDATE

    UPDATE: the vet wanted to test four of the lumps. She was able to do a needle aspiration on two, which were just fat. The other two she couldn't get any cells out of, so I'm going to bring him in next week for a teeth cleaning, and while he's under she'll remove those two lumps and send them off to the lab. I think they're probably ok though.

    I know it's probably his age (he'll be 9 in December), but Sam is getting so many lumps. What worries me is that some move around and some don't. I've had them checked before and the vet has always said they didn't feel like anything to worry about and to just keep an eye on them. But now he has like 10 of them, maybe more. I'm going to go over him tonight and note all the locations to make sure they all get checked. We go in at 3pm tomorrow. I love him so much, I can't help but worry.

    Lumps are always a worry. Hope they are just benign lipomas. Sending good thoughts for Sam.

    Our Maggie was 12 and for the last 2 or 3 years of her life had fatty tumors. They were on her underside belly and chest area. She was overweight as she got older and the vet said often older overweight dogs get them. She started with one and ended with many. She never had to have them removed or anything. A couple were pretty good sized ones. Hopefully that is what Sam has as well.

    hope there nothing
    Mine has about 25 or more of them biggest one is about the size of an egg, and lots of small one's
    had them a few yrs now, never an issue

    vets I been to all seem to say same thing, if they do not effect the dog at all, just leave them, be

    my pfirends Mom's lab has one about the size of a football on its rib cage
    looks terrible, but her lab is old, and her vet says leave it be

    been there 3 yrs now, dog is almost 16, they didn't expect it to live as long, or I think they would have suggested to remove it
    but dog gets by fine even with that monster one

    hope that brings you a little peace till you see your vet!

    most are just fatty tumors, and more or less harmless!
