Question Two little bumps...

Well I decided to lay in bed and cuddle with the kids a little before getting up for the day. Louie was on his back next to me, thoroughly enjoying the belly rub he was getting, when my hand went up to his chest and I felt this little bump... about the size of an M&M. It felt sorta soft, just like a little fatty cyst you usually feel on older dogs (he's only just turned two, though). Then I felt another about an inch away. There is no discoloration around them, no redness or show of irritation. And he seems oblivious to them, acting normall and all. I felt him over completely and didnt find any more.

Should I be worried? My first thought was just little cysts... but do younger dogs get those? I've only ever seen them on older dogs so I dont know... Then I thought bug bites (tis the season after all) but like I said no redness or anything like usual bug bites.

Monday is a holiday so I'll probably have to wait at least till Tuesday if I decide to go to the vet, but you guys are always so helpfull in the meantime...

It could be bug bites, they're not always colored. But it could be small normal lumps too. It will be easy for your vet to test it, I'm sure it's nothing.

Could be an allergic reaction to a bug bite maybe?
