    DefaultLump under fur on chest

    I found a lump on the chest of my dog Emmett last night -when I was massaging him. It feels a little loose, almost gelatin. It moves around a little and doesn't seem to cause him any pain.

    Is anyone familiar with this? Should I take him to the vet?

    Thanks a lot,

    It's probably a lipoma, but I'd have it checked. Better safe than sorry.

    How old is Emmett? If it were my dog I would schedule an appointment just for my own peace of mind.

    yeah ---sounds like a fatty tumor - harmless, but worth getting checked out by the vet.

    Our Max had a fatty tumor, was worth the trip to the vet to know for sure.

    Sounds like a fatty tumor. Ask the vet about aspirating it for more peace of mind.

    My old girl had quite a few of these and they never bothered her.

    Does it change size at times? Chocolata had a mass cell tumor under her arm. Sometimes it was very small and if stimulated (by touching etc.) it would get bigger.
