lump on nose

I have a 10 year old Golden Retriever that has developed a hard lump on the bride of her nose, that you can press on with no reaction from the dog.  Took her to the vet and she really had no answers but to biopsy it, really don't know what to do.  any ideas?

Hi dougie,
There really isn't anything you CAN do. Just wait for the results of the biopsy. Then when you know what it is, the vet will suggest what to do. If you are not satisfied, consult a different vet and get a 2nd opinion.

Hi dougie..sorry to hear about your poor dog's nose!

Ginger has it right.   Unless a biopsy is done, there is no way of knowing for certain what it might be.   Possibilities would be anything from inflammation due to infection all the way up to various types of tumors.

Have the biopsy done and maybe radiographs as well.  Once you find out what it is, you can visit the Ask The Expert side of the pet forums and solicit thoughts from our veterinarians there.

Let us know what the results are, ok?
