Has anybody on here got a lumpy bumpy dog? My Daisy has always always had lumps. A few years back I had one removed and tested and they said it was just a cyst and nothing to worry about. She had a few more pop up and I didn't want to put her through the aggro of being chopped about again. Now she is old she has a few here and there. I wonder if this is quite common in staffies.

Has anyone else got a lumpy old staff like me??? Love Struck Love Struck Love Struck Love Struck

My Stella had numerous lumps/cysts in her later years but had her first large fatty lump on her neck at the age of 6. Nothing sinister thank god. When she was 9 two more lumps appeared and when she was under the knife again the vet rang me and said "I've found another 3, shall I remove those too?" Off they came and when we picked her up was shocked to see so much fur shaven, even on her little face.
A year later another one appeared under her armpit and the vet said just to leave it as I think they know when it's just fatty lumps and not serious. I found a couple more in her final few years but didn't worry about them and my vet agreed to leave them alone due to her age.  So there you go Clare, in Stella's case and in your darling Daisy's case, I can honestly say, yes, quite common☺

My Flo has two small lumps which the vet has said aren't anything to worry about and just to keep an eye on. They haven't changed in over a year.

I think they are quite common as they get older.

Yep, here too! Bug had her first at around 3 which sadly was cancerous (a grade 6 malignant melanoma). She has had 2 more since, both black and fast growing so removed swiftly but thankfully both were benign! She has had a few tempoary lumps that have disappeared on her own, as well as some strange blood blisters which come and go on her tummy. I naturally panic when they do come but I think they're pretty common in staffies in general Smile

Thanks that makes me feel a bit better. As you said Sheila, when Daisy had one removed before I was so shocked at the amount of fur shaved and stitches in her neck. I don't want to put her under anaesthetic due to her age and condition so will just see how she goes.

They told me she could have a brain tumour as she had a stroke last year, but they said they could only tell if they scanned her which would be about £1000 and I thought what is the point in knowing really because I wouldn't put her through Chaemotherapy at her age love her so I just enjoy each day I have her now. xx
