    DefaultDog has developed lumps around eye over night

    Hello,

    I am new to this forum so apologies if anything about this post is not in keeping with the forum rules!

    I am currently looking after my mothers dog for over a month as she has gone abroad and this morning I noticed she now has lumps around one eye.

    Here is a photo: https://www.dropbox.com/s/kfj40kf81z1jo35/photo-1.JPG

    She is a 14month old black lab. We have not changed any of her food while she has been here, she eats her normal kibble and then if we are out for a long time we sometimes give her this meat stuffed bone that my mother got from a shop (so she has had them before).

    She is acting her completely normal happy self, and does not seem bothered by the lumps around the eye.

    I was just wondering what I should do, do I need to see a vet?

    Thank you very much for all your help.

    Sarah

    So I just checked her eye again and the lumps are now completely gone - strange!!
    I'll keep an eye (ha!) on it and see if they return.

    If it were my dog, i would watch it for a few days. Sometimes these things go away by themselves. If it was my mother's dog, I would take it to the Vet, because I am extra vigilent with other's pet that I don't know as well as my own.
    If it is worrying you, a Vet visit will reassure you.

    Very true, as the vets are not open today I will take a look again tomorrow and maybe take a trip to the vets.
    Thank you for the advice.

    Yep, go talk to your Vet. The pups 'lumps' are receding, which should relieve a bit of your stress. He may well ask you what you are feeding your pup. There are many 'junk food' brands of dog food. As the old computer adage goes, garbage in garbage out. We all are products of what we eat
