Contact your regular animal hospital and monitor for other signs
- If your regular veterinary hospital is open, contact them now. If they are closed, it is probably safe to wait until morning. If the lump doesn’t change in appearance or size and your dog is not bothered by it, you are probably safe to monitor them.
- If your dog is licking or scratching at the lump, put a cone on them.
- Monitor your dog carefully – if your dog becomes very lethargic, painful, or vomits, contact an emergency veterinary clinic.
