Shiba Inu Lump on Belly?
I have a Shiba Inu, Roxie, that is a year and 3 months old. She has not been fixed.
I noticed today that there was a lump on her stomach and I don't know what it is! It is a hard lump and I never noticed anything before this. I don't know if it is just swelling because she bit herself in a bad spot, mammary inflammation, cancer, or what!? So any help would be appreciated. This is only the first day I have seen it and I was going to wait a few days before I go to the vet.
Also, she tolerates pain very well. She fractured her iliac crest, took her to the vet, and they thought nothing was wrong with her. So keep that in mind as well, that if it bothers her and causes her pain, she won't show it like most dogs.
