Hi, i just noticed 2 lumps right next to each other on jax’s side going toward his shoulder area. They do not feel firm to me. Anyone ever see this and have ideas of what it could be? Vet appt is on wed.

Did your baby have any vaccinations lately?
No, his rabies booster was done back in august. So no vaccines but he did have an injection of bupremorphine 2 wks ago for bladder inflammation which has since resolved. His urine was extracted via syrynge last wk and retested normal

Is this the injection site? We see sometimes it can be 2 weeks later and a bump appears. Please update us after your vet visit.

Don’t freak...probably an adverse reaction at the injection site. Your information will help members in the future.

Glad the uriine test came bsck normal ! Yah!
All paws crossed for Wed vet visit
I would ask the vet to rule out fatty benign lipoma ? Like dogs get -
Benign follicular cyst?

Good for peace of mind you are getting a vet visit
Let us know the diagnosis /treatment
and if the vet recommended a fine needle aspiration biopsy ?
Please keep us updated

hi everyone, update: Jax went for his vet visit yesterday and the vet is thinking it is a reaction from the bupremorphine injection he recvd under the skin 3 wks ago, but she did biopsy it to confirm, she said it could also be a fatty tissue but was leaning more toward a reaction. i will get the results of the biopsy on sunday
