Take the dog to a vet. Now.

Has she seen a vet, yet, swee-pee? Most of the members here are not vets, and it would be awfully hard to diagnose something like this over the internet, anyway. A vet would be able to give you a better idea about what's going on with your dog.

How long has this been going on? Do they seem like fatty lumps or hives or something else? By "being sick regularly" do you mean throwing up? Could she have gotten into something noxious, or be having a doozy of an allergic reaction? A vet is your first step, I think.

If this has come on suddenly and she's swollen and/or can't keep food or water down, I would consider it an emergency and take her in to the vet right now! Probably wouldn't hurt to give the vet a call first and let them know she's coming in...

I hope you can find something out and she's better soon, swee-pee. :fingerscr Good luck and let us know what the vet says. :grouphug:

An allergic reaction would be my first concern with regard to what you are describing. A few questions: Do the 'bumps' come and go? Are they enlarging? Is she itchy? When you say she is sick as well, do you mean she is vomiting? If so, how often? Is she eating and drinking? How is her activity?

My recommendation would be to take her to your veterinarian and have her assessed. If it is allergic, you veterinarian can fix that rather easily but she/he can also rule out other possibilities. Either way a vet visit is probably the next step.

Good luck. :pawprint:
