Has anyone had a dog or puppy with a saroma? My 13 week old GR developed this egg shaped lump on her head this week wed/thursday. It appeared very suddenly so I figured she hit her head an it was a swelling. The vet today aspirated it to confirm it was not infectious - which it isnt but diagnosed as a saroma. She advised to put warm compresses and monitor for any changes.....Fionna is completely oblivious to its presence and it is not painful to touch....has anyone had an experience with a saroma? Thanks in Advance! She thanks you too!

Lord knows my Boz has had his share of illnesses, in fact he's recuperating from surgery right now. What I do know is that GRF members are extremely helpful and of course passionate about their Goldens. I'm positive someone will come through with some help for you and your precious little one! Hang in there:wavey: Love from Boz and Sarah

i looked on line and saw that some people have gotten seromas because of knocking their head on something, like bonking their head on a tree. did she hit her head on something?

Things that I found online are it can be caused from hitting their head. Warm compresses help and if it does not go down then to get it rechecked. Good luck, she is a real cutie bear.
