I just found a lump on my my 8-1/2 year old Golden retriever's chest, right along a rib that is about the size of a large grape, soft, and not moveable. I immediately called my vet and cannot get him until until Tuesday!!! Am worried sick about this mainly because it is not movable!!! Anyone have any thoughts on this?? Should I be this concerned??

Personally, since you have an appointment, I wouldn't panic. Just keep an eye on it.

My last dog Travis had fatty tissue growths on him before and we had some removed when he had surgery for bloat. You have an appointment with your vet, he will be better able to tell you what it is , I don't think a couple of days will make a great difference. Your a good mummy.
