Brown thick Ooze Lump?

My black chow chow, Vixy, rolled over and I rubbed her stomach. I felt along her ribcage and felt a small lump, separated the hair to get to it, and examined it. I barely squeezed it and a thick, brown pimple like substance shot out. She has a few all over her body. What ARE these? Is she okay? She gets brushed daily and fed organic dog food.

They could be sebaceous cysts, which when squeezed do exude a creamy pus.  They are similar to dermal cysts in humans.  They are benign, and may sometimes be related to environmental or food allergies that affect the skin.  

However, there are some external parasites that could have this appearance as well as other dermal masses benign or metastatic.  It would be best to have them examined by your vet.  Your vet could do a skin scraping, biopsy and other diagnostics to get a definitive diagnosis.

She is also about 9-10 years of age, and lives outdoors on a ranch. We have no other dogs she could contract something like this from. Only two cats who are healthy.

Please get the scraping or biopsy.  Due to her age it may be something more serious.
