soft spot

Q Alicia asks:

I have a chihuahua. She is about five months old and she has a soft spot in top of her head. I was wondering if this is normal? Also I was wondering if it is okay for her to play with my other dogs? Should I be concerned? Thank you for your time.

Q Our vet says: It is difficult to be sure what this is without actually being able to examine her and palpate the soft spot. It could be something like a cyst but you should really get your local vet to check it for you. You also ask if it is OK for her to play with your other dogs- this will depend upon several things, such as the size and temperament of the other dogs, and if she would be able to get away from them if things get a bit too rough for her. I have known several tiny dogs who happily play with very large dogs, but this is a judgment which needs to be left up to you, since only you know your animals well enough to decide. I would say that if you have any doubts as to her safety you should be very cautious and trust your own judgment.
