It's pretty common for dogs that make cysts to make more than one. I probably wouldn't rush her in to have them checked unless they are growing/changing/bothering her. I'd just have them checked next time she is in for something else.

Brady had one for 2 1/2 years, it had a definite "eye" to it. The vet charted it and said he would probably get more.

In the past few months it got smaller, but the "eye" got bigger. This weekend, I had him at the vets, and she looked at it, and squeezed it like a big black head. Everything came out, black waxy material. Now I can't even tell where it was, but she told me since there is a preexisting cavity, it will probably come back.

I also had her look at two other bumps without eyes, on his back, and I need to keep an eye on them. They are right where he would have gotten each vaccine, but they are too small for her to aspirate.

I looked on earthclinic, and found this link re using turmeric to get rid of cysts in dogs/cats.

CYST REMEDIES FOR PETS

When I had Lacey, she had a pea-sized sebaceous cyst on the inside of her left rear leg (had always had it; but it was never a problem). When she got sick with IMHA, and since her immune system was compromized, the cyst grew to the size of a 50-cent piece and was red & inflamed. Per the vet I cleaned it with Witch Hazel and put Neosporin on it. Neither of these 2 treatments worked!

I then start adding a teaspoon of turmeric to her food once/day, and I swear, within 2 weeks the entire cyst was gone!! I could not believe it! It was actually gone! Well, to say the least, I was convinced!

Didn't work here for Tucker, wish it did. Might be because it had already broke open at that point, what a mess.

Tucker started getting them at about 6yrs of age. During the last year of his life 2 broke open on his back. One healed but turned into a small adenoma as I recall. The other leaked which I kept cleaned up for a year. It got ugly a few times so put him on Cephalexin.

No one would touch him for removal, not even with a local. His lungs had collapsed months before.

Fiona had one on her back/tail are so I had it removed. Knowing how Goldens love to roll on their backs I did not want to go through that again somewhere down the road.

Thank you everyone for your responses, I really appreciate them all!

Flora being so young was one of the reasons I was mildly confused as to why she's got all these bumps already. Carmella definitely developed several lipomas, but this wasn't until she was older.

I think what I'll do sometime this next week when I've got the time is print out some sort of... dog map, hah, and map out where Flora's lumps are. Then I can monitor them until I get her into the vet next. If any of them begin to alarm me I'll take her in pronto. But right now all they are are pea-sized, hard flat lumps under the skin. As of now I don't think she's ever had a ruptured cyst, so I'll cross my fingers and hope that doesn't happen in the future. She doesn't seem bothered by them in the least, so that's good.

Unfortunately I think Flora may be destined to grow lots of lumps and bumps, as she also has two small growths on her lower eyelids which, as of right now, the vet says are nothing to worry about, but one is definitely getting slightly bigger and will probably need to be removed in the next year or so.
