Do dogs have an "Adam's Apple?" I found a lump in Jupiter's throat yesterday that is in about the same place that a human's adam's apple would be & was wondering if this is normal, or if it is something that I need to be concerned about. The lump is hard and about an inch wide. It is symmetrical and directly in the center of his throat.

It could be that this is his "adam's apple" and he is just developing it. He is around 6 months old.

Thanks for any responses.

The "Adam's Apple" is actually just cartilage of the larynx. And yes, dog's do have them. :)
