Mystery Growth.

Boy does not want to talk about this but i am very worried about him. You see, he has some growth on his tummy tum tum and it looks like this.

Let me describe this lump. It is neither soft nor very hard but it seems to be solid. It does seem to be growing thou. Current ly is like 1 cm big. And when mama touches it, he is pretty okay but he just dont like her to squeeze it but he does not yelp either.

The second lump:

This is actually his nipple. You cant see it clearly from the picture but there are some black dots around it which i think it is blackheads and it can be squeeze out.

Mama will be bringing him to the vet soon. But meanwhile, if you know anything about this or has experience anything like this, please tell me.

Boy on the other hand is still behaving as per normal. His appetite is as good and he still snores when he sleeps.


We have decided to name our baby hammie Taz cos Oscar chose the name for us before he went over to the rainbow bridge. Thank you Oscar.

Hi Baby,
I think you mom should take Boy yo see the vet asap.. better get it checked out. They don't look like the 'fatty deposits' that I told your mom abt..
Taz is a nice name.. it's actually daddy's nickname for my mom cos she is like the Tasmanian DEVIL (the d.e.v.i.l part, get it?).

Can't be sure what that lump is. Older doggies can get lumps that aren't bad, but best to get it checked asap like your mama is doing.
Please let us know how it goes?

Hum... I think a visit to the vet should tell you what the lump is about. I'm crossing my paws for Boy that it's nothing serious

Taz is a cute name for the baby hammie.

i hope it's something that can easily be treated. mom's old dog had two swollen nipples that had to be removed. she stayed at the hospital for a few days and was healthy and happy when she came back. take care and please keep us updated.

The lump looks scawie with blood veins. I know my playmate, Anthon the 15 year old shih Tzu has lumps over his body but they are harmless. Hope it will turn out fine.

I hope it's nothing serious, it does look big and at first I thought it was a hernia or something... but I guess it's something else.

Luckie Girl said...

I have no idea what's that. But the red veins look big and angry. I hope the vet can tell us a little more. Keep us posted on what the vet says??

Hmmmm, I don't know what that lump is or what it was caused by. But I did have one huge lump on mt side a year ago & it was as big as a fist. Is was slightly soft too like it's filled with water. The doc injected that part(ouchy!)& sucked out some blood mixed with some liquid & some air too. Don't know what that lump was but I think it was caused by the 'lalang' leaves coz they're very sharp. But after rubbing that lump with hot stone wrapped with a cloth everyday about twice a day, it went down in a few days, slowly. You could ask your mommy to try that with Boy but I still suggest her to bring him to the vet to check out what it is. It is very important that it is not tumor, if it is, it should be removed immediately before it spreads around & the internal organs.

Please keep us updated yeah...Taz is a good name for a hammie by the way.

Love licks,
