Hi I was wondering if anyone knows what this is on my 12 week old baby's neck ?? He's been home with us for a week now & I noticed it today. It's the size of a pea & I can move it around under his skin. He's not bothered by it at all, he's eating, drinking, playing & going to the toilet fine. I've contacted his breeder who has never come across it before but I can't get him to the vets until next week. It is in the area where he would of had his injections, he's fully vaccinated last injection was 2 weeks ago so it's not fluid who've my boys sometimes get after their booster. I would really appreciate any advice, sorry if the photo isn't the best but it shows the size roughly, thanks, lisa & boys xxx

Sure others will chime in -
I suspect a vaccination site lump that should go down -
Definitely follow up with vet and ask if it it is such , do they report it back to the vaccination manufacturer to cover vet bills ? Does the breeder self vaccinate and/or can provide the vaccination manufacturer info?
was he also microchipped in this area?

Sending had smooches -
Looking forward to good news updates

Just a guess, if not from vaccines; one of my kits had a lipoma on his chest. His new momma was very worried, but it went away on its own.. She said it felt like it was the size of a pea.

They have been several people on here have the injections done
and it will leave these cyst type things. They, have had to have them
removed. Nothing come from it, just a scar. Maybe they will chime in.

Glad your breeder confirmed that it was the injection site. Your vet will probably track the size and hopefully in another 2 weeks it will go down. Please let us know how the vet visit goes.
