I don't know how common it is, but my 11 yr old dog has been lumpy for all of this adult life. I think he had small lumps and skin tags around 3 yrs. In his senior years he has over 10 lumps and tags - I don't count them all anymore. Pretty much anywhere you pet him you will feel something. Only his now biggest one is apparent though, as his double coat hides them well. He's been through a big surgery to get 6 of his biggest ones removed (ranging from lemon-sized to quarter sized). His biggest ones have all been aspirated and benign. I didn't have the removed ones biopsied but had the surgery done because one in particular was getting very large.

I assume it's genetic. He's just my lumpy dog :)

The ones that suddenly come up and are large, are concerning! I hope it is nothing. Best of luck!
