lump on back of dog's neck

Species: dog | Category: parasites | Submitted: 29 September 2007 06:07PM | viewed 23648 times
Q Mark asks:

Max has had a lump on the back of his neck for a week; it has grown and is now bleeding. He is up to date with flea treatment.

Q Our vet says: It sounds as if it could be serious and it definitely needs attention. You have chosen the parasites category but it does not sound like a parasitic problem to me (unless it is an extremely nasty tick bite which has perhaps become infected- but this would not be high on my list of possibilities). Any lumps or bumps should be taken seriously and if they grow quickly and bleed even more so. My first thoughts would be of an abscess or tumour so please do take the problem seriously and contact your local vet.
