I have a Lab & Pointer mixed.
I was told that it's normal for Labs to have lumps on their bodies - is it true?
My lab besides having lumps on her body, she also got on like a pimple on her face and seems to be getting bigger, I'm a kind of worried wheather I should have it moves or not.

Please email me the reply. Thank you.

Hello

Bring her to see the vet. Some dogs do develop fatty deposits under their skin that appear as lumps. They can seem worrisome but your vet can let you know what they are. If this is what they are, they're not a problem. I know a lab though, who was left unchecked, and it turned out to be a tumour that grew and grew and finally exploded. It was never removed properly and it grew again. I'd get it checked out just to be sure.

I've heard it is normal for labs to have these under their skin, but just to be safe, you should take her to the vet. :)
