Hi Everyone,
Just wanted to say hi and introduce myself, my Black Lab, Bear and my cat, Jordan. I do have a question that I am hoping someone may be able to help with. Just last night my husband noticed this very small lump under Bear's front leg (kind of in his armpit), it doesn't seem to hurt him but having lost a Black Lab to tumors years ago, it is a little unnerving to us. Does anyone have any ideas about what it could be. We didn't notice it before.

Hi, DDawe. Welcome to the board.

I'm looking forward to those pictures when you are able to post them!

As for the lump--to know for sure, you'll need to have a vet look at it. Most lumps are benign, but best to get it checked out.
