My 7 year old BLM has had a soft lump on his head, right over his right ear, for a couple of years. My old vet never seemed too concerned about it, said maybe some type of cellulitis. 1 year ago, the lump suddenly grew much bigger and pointier, (yes, the joke has been made about the horns sprouting) and the area was oozing and granulated. The vet I was using then shaved his head and called it an infected exema or something like that. We treated with a course of antibiotics, oral and topical. It got better, and the area returned to perfectly normal and flat for the first time in years.
Now a year later, Indy has a similar swelling on the OTHER side! This time the lump is growing over his left ear, on the flat part of his head. It is definitely getting "pointier" but no oozing or scabbing yet. Have ANY of you heard of something like this? I will take him to a vet here in Taos if it does start looking worse, but I know nothing about the vet here except that we went once for heart worm checks and meds when we first got here.
Indy is looking good in general, lots of energy, good appetite so I don't think this thing is causing anyone a problem but me. Dogs should not have lumps on their heads that I did not put!
