Fatty tumors and skin itching

8266 Views 2 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  winniec777
My dog has a lump on her chest that I suspect is a fatty tumor and when I pet her sides, it seems like it feels hard to the touch (hard to explain) Should I be concerned? Also, she has been chewing herself and scratching and has red inner thighs and hot spot. We put Frontline on her, but I don't know if it's a flea issue. I also gave her a bath with oatmeal shampoo. Anyone dealing or have dealt with these issues?

I would second going to the vet. The tumor needs to be biopsied (you wouldnt ignore one on yourself, would you?) And you need to make the dog more comfortable. Cant do that without knowing what is going on. We had a tumor biopsied on our dog a couple months ago. It was benign, thank goodness but good to be sure. Good luck with your pup.
