  Lump under dogs skin?
My dog has a lump under his skin on his upper back (behind his neck). At first I though it could be a tick but first of all its under the skin and second, we give him frontline plus flea and tick prevenative every month along with heartgaurd plus. Anyways, im scared so I scheduled an appoitment for a checkup with our vet on Saturday. What could it possibly be?

It could just be a fatty lump, my Lab had a few. They are harmless, and common in dogs that are a little overweight, it could also be something more serious, so it is good that you are going to the vets.

first things that spring to mind:
* abscess
* benign tumor
* fatty cyst
* malignancy
* a bite that did not heal
* scar tissue that U had not noticed?
* spider or other insect bite with or w/o venom
* reaction to a vax or the flea-preventive

if it is itchy, it could be a reaction to a contact exposure.

hope it is mild, and disappears as fast as it showed up!
