my dachund has 2 large knots the size of golf balls above her kidneys, her fur has been changing to a brighter red, when I touch them and feel around she doesnt seem to respond to pain , but I can tell she doesn't feel good, taking to vet tomorrow but does anyone have any ideas? oh and she is about to turn 10yo
Welcome....What do they feel like? Are they actually, like hard golf balls on top of the skin or is part underneath the skin? Did they just come up quickly or have they gradually come up? Are they identical on each side?
The hair that's changing colors; is it on the same area or somewhere else?
Let us know, Karla
