lump on staffy's head

Species: dog | Category: medical-surgical | Submitted: 15 April 2007 10:26AM | viewed 4963 times
Q Gail asks:

We brought our staff when he was able to leave his parents. When we chose him he had a small lump on his head a bit like a cyst, the breeder said it was common in staffys, we took him to the vets for his injections and showed the vet his lump who wasn't worried about it and told us it was nothing major. Our staffy is now 6 months old and the lump has always been the same till yesterday when our dog woke and I took a closer look at him I noticed over night the lump has tripled in size and has got harder our dog seems ok in his self eating and acting as normal but its worried me how it has grown over night I've tried to feel the lump but he wriggles too much when I try to feel it so I'm not sure if its painful or not; just thought I'd ask your advice thanks gail

Q Our vet says: I think it should be checked by a vet really. It is possible that he might have traumatized it in some way or it has become infected.
