  1. A Lump On Right Thigh

    Cancer Information for Golden Retrievers
    Koffie has a growing lump on the side of his right thigh. I first found it more than half a year ago when it felt like a small yellow soybean, but I checked on it again last night and it is now the size of a small date, or up until the first knuckle of my thumb. I'm really confused because I...
  2. My dog has scrapes and possible Lip Fold? Need Medical Help/Advice!

    Golden Retriever Health, Anatomy & Breed Standard
    I was looking over my 6 year old golden retriever the other day after seeing he had an quarter sized abrasion under his jaw. I cleaned it up a bit and found out he had another spot right above it but it was a lot smaller, a bit less than dime sized. I don't know where he got these, I don't let...
  3. Torque has a lump on left knee

    Golden Retriever Health, Anatomy & Breed Standard
    Hi All, I am new here, had a question if someone could answer. Torque is 8 years old and lives with my parents in India. We don't have good vets in our city, figured I would ask people here if they have seen something similar. The lump appeared about six months ago and the two vets we took him...
  4. Hard lump on hip, need advice

    Golden Retriever Health, Anatomy & Breed Standard
    My Chuck Bear turned 5 last November, and with the exception of a few ear infections from swimming at the beach, and allergies when he was a puppy, he's been perfectly healthy. He was a bit overweight a few months back, but he is now at a good weight. I know I'm probably being an overbearing...
  5. Lump found by puppies armpit

    Golden Retriever Health, Anatomy & Breed Standard
    Hello to everyone! As I was petting my 3-month-old puppy, I found a lump behind her front right leg around the armpit area. The lump is about the size of a nickel, with a little thickness to it and there are no signs of irritation around her fur. Our vet's office has closed for the day so I...
  6. What to do about sores near elbow?

    Golden Retriever Health, Anatomy & Breed Standard
    The side of her right side near the elbow has a small pink lump/bump/inflamed area that seems to have a little crust or scab. I noticed the left side has something similar but a lot smaller. Doesn't seem to be the elbow where she lays down, but could be when she lays on her side? Does anyone...
  7. Canine papilloma virus (bumps on lip)

    Golden Retriever Health, Anatomy & Breed Standard
    Not off to a good 2013. Noticed a bump on my pup's lip the other I"m seeing a few tiny ones. She has a vet appt in a few days but I'm worried there's not much they can do about this (according to the internet). I'm giving her vitamin e and ester c to try to help boost her system...
  8. Fat mass area on back normal?

    Golden Retriever Health, Anatomy & Breed Standard
    My 1.5 year old has some fat/mass on her back right behind the shoulders. If I run my hands down the entire back passing that area it makes her back move (almost like when you scratch a certain area and the legs twitch). Is this normal? It's not a lump but rather a mass or fat/lump the size of...
  9. Pimple looking growth on paw

    Golden Retriever Health, Anatomy & Breed Standard
    Attaching a picture to see if this should be a concern. Her back foot paw has a small white/light pink bump that resembles a human's zit. Anyone know what this could be?
  10. I don't know what it is...

    Cancer Information for Golden Retrievers
    My golden, Corona, has had a lump on her back and has not grown or changed since it was discovered so we haven't worried about it. Recently her tail has lost more and more hair and is now very thin with the skin visible. Could someone please tell me what may be going on with her? Thank you!
  11. Could this be a umbilical hernia???

    Golden Retrievers - Main Discussion
    Jinger, my almost four year old Golden, has a small (maybe the size of a baby pea) whitish, maybe a little oval shaped, lump on her belly. It's in the middle of her belly, where I would imagine the umbilical would have been. She's had it a little while, but I can't say when I first noticed it...
  12. Hyperkeratosis aka What's this weird growth on my dog?

    Golden Retriever Health, Anatomy & Breed Standard
    Hello everyone! This is my first time posting here. I wanted to share something that's going on with my dog right now in the hopes that someone else might stumble upon this post when looking facing a similar issue and be relieved to find some information. My golden, Apollo, started acting...
  13. Lumps recurring on Puppy

    Golden Retriever Health, Anatomy & Breed Standard
    Hi Everyone, I am posting here in desperation as no vet we have seen has been able to point us in the direction of a cause for our Digby’s lumps. Recently at about 16 weeks, Digby had a lump removed from his back (egg sized). Pathology described it as organised haematoma, but could not say what...
  14. Frightened by swollen lymph node

    Cancer Information for Golden Retrievers
    Hi everyone, It's my first time visiting this forum, and I've been enjoying reading about everyone's dogs. I'm here because I was very alarmed yesterday to find a sudden lump on my dog's chest. It's in front of her left shoulder, hard, mobile. I'm sure it wasn't there a few days earlier. I'm...
