Hi..I have a 10yr Siberian that is in great health and very active. I noticed as I was standing over him and rubbing his rib cage that when I reached the hip bone a small marble sized lump. It is not on the leg or hip it's right before the crease to the hip. I've had a few Siberians and they do tend to get fatty masses and wondering could this be another or some sort of hernia? Just wondering any idea's as the holiday and can't get into vet until next week as something I should be rushed about prior to then. You can push on the lump and feel it and no reaction from the dog. So, no pain associated with it. Thanks Robyn
