I Found Bumps on My Dog’s Body

Bumps on a Dog’s Body Can Mean Many Things…

Lumps or bumps could mean a number of different things for your pet and their skin. Bumps on a pet’s skin could be anything from fluid build-up or a fatty cyst to cancer.  Here in Arizona, bumps on a dog’s skin can signal allergies.  Larger bumps under the skin can be benign fatty deposits.  While some lumps and bumps are harmless, this is a situation where it’s best to have your veterinarian take a look to be sure your dog gets treatment if needed.  Call us at 480-391-7297 so we can be of assistance.
