When the pups went to the vet this week, the vet noticed a small lump on Tiger Lily's shoulder area. She didn't seem overly concerned and said it was possibly just a cyst that will go away on it's own and she'll check it again in three weeks.

I'm wondering... has anyone else had this or heard of it? We had them tested for all sorts of stuff and everything came back negative, their physical went great... could it possibly have been a reaction to her shot? Like a lump where she was injected? It's not where her microchip is, btw. That's further down her back.

Might be where the micro chip is,might be a compression lump where she might have gotten nipped or bit by one of her litter mates as a pup. You can get those if you fall and it will compress the tissue into a kind of lump,my husband has that on his hip where he fell off a ladder once...

My Sasha has one that's kinda hard too ,the vet checked it out and it was a compression injury from a bite.
I'd have the vet check it out anyway.just in case.
Keep us posted.
