Bump on dog's nose?

Hello,

We have a 4 1/2 year old lab mix named Ruca. I recently noticed a bump on the "bridge" of her nose. At first, I questioned whether or not the bump had always been there, because it is quite subtle. But it's been a couple of days, and I keep noticing it, which leads me to believe it has not been there all along! I even looked in pictures to see if the bump was always there, but I can't really tell. Very strange.

Ruca has also been moving a little more slowly after she's been laying down for a while... Takes her a minute to get up and moving, and stretching a lot more, even just randomly throughout the day. I don't know if these things could be connected, but I thought I'd mention it... She seems pretty young to be experiencing joint stiffness like this.

I found some pictures on an old forum that resemble her bump, although the one in this picture is a little more extreme. But on this forum, the verdict is a bee sting... It's winter here in Ohio, so that isn't a possibility. Here is the link:


Unfortunately, my computer won't allow me to upload photos for some reason, so this is the best I've got.

Anyone have any ideas? Intelligent and thoughtful answers only, please.

Thank you

Erin

Sorry, can't allow you to link to that forum. That bump does look vet worthy tho. Probably a sinus problem

I second a trip to the vet!
Talk to your vet not only about the bump but also your lab's stiffness!
