What is this movable lump in my dog's neck?


Answer by  Anonymous

May be caused by an infection someplace in or on your dog. Could be a side effect of Staph infection from flea bites or other kinds of infections. My dog has these in his throat and under his armpit. Soft, and movable under the skin. He had Staph.

Like finding one on yourself, locating a lump on your dog can sometimes be cause for an owner's concern! However, many times the lump is simply a benign tumor or cyst. Contact your vet, he or she will perform an exam & possibly a biopsy to nail down a cause.
