DH keeps telling me about this knot in Chloe's chest, I can't feel it! All I can feel is fat or muscle!

She is a very husky, muscular girl, I think it's fat but he worries me, what if I just keep missing what he is trying to tell me...it feels very loose and at the most I told him might be a fatty tumor. Right??

I think I will show the vet the next time, wich is here this month just to make sure.

I think next time you go to the vet have him look at it if the next visit isnt too far off. But if it is take her in soon. None of the other pups have anything like that do they? We will say a prayer that it is nothing.

No I checked the others they do not have one like she does, to me it just feels like fat or muscle, but I will point it out to the vet this month for her yearly check up.

Hopefully DH is just over reacting, wich is understandable...this is about the time in Peanut's life that we lost her.

He loved her dearly, so he is over protective of Chloe!

I would have the vet check it. She seems too young to have a fat tumor. That said...it is probably nothing...as you said you don't feel it. But just to be safe, have the vet check.

Just to ease DH and my mind now that he's got me worried..and I still can't feel it!

I don't know if this helps or not, but two of my human babies had "knots" (but around their shoulder/neck) that my pediatrician had me massage and with time they did go away. Maybe puppies can get the same thing.:crossfing

I hope that's all it is, like I said I still can't feel want DH is talking about, or just another thought maybe it's a left over from the bad hot spot she had, I just don't know..so we will have it checked and hopefully DH is just loosing it :):):)

Aaah, I hate it when my DH does that to me! LOL! It worries me, especially since I'm the "caregiver", I'm the one who grooms, brushes & bathes, etc. Seems like I'd notice something first, but he's always pointing out something to me. The good news is that so far, they've all been nothing. I guess it's good that they mention it to us....I just hate it when he makes me worry! :) Like I don't do enough of that on my own! Grrrrr.....

When it doubt, check it out....let your vet take a look so you know for sure.

So true..lol

All I can feel is fat or muscle, I know what a tumor feels like having little Charlie...she is going in 2 weeks and I will have the vet check it..so she can tell me my DH is nut's..LOL
