My 6 y/o iggy has recently developed a large lump on or right below his anus. It does not interfear with normal functions and seems to cause no pain. It is not red or imflamed at all. I read somewhere that their anal glands sometimes need to be cleaned out. Could this be the possible cause?
I am so sorry to hear! It is really weird because my Italian greyhound has the same exact lump where your dog has it. And I went to the vet and they said it was a Hernia. A hernia is not harmful to dogs usually! but just every once in a while take a look at it! and if it seems to get bigger then go to a vet! my best wishes go to you and your dog!!!
