Lump on dogs back leg

My dogs back leg is a little lumpy with a red spot and has been doing this for about a week now.

It's just a small lump on the back side of their hind legs. When I'm holding them, I can feel it and when I step on them, it gets real painful.

I took them to the vet for a check-up yesterday and the vet said it looks fine.

Is it okay to put him on pain medication if it hurts and makes him uncomfortable?

I don't think it's an issue, but in case it is, it's not going to help it. It can be an infection or it can be a fracture. If you suspect that, you will have to take him to the vet.

When I was younger, my grandfather had a back problem, and took a course of antibiotics to kill off the infection. I'm pretty sure that it made his problem worse, and made it hard for him to walk, and he had to walk with a cane for a long time. My grandmother also had a back problem at the same time, and her problem was much worse, so it could be the same thing. My grandfather didn't think so, but my grandmother did, and she wanted to try it. She took a big chance and it was probably a huge mistake.

My brother in law has had problems with a back leg that has a huge lump on it. He was told it could be an infection and would have to be looked at more closely. They did a bunch of x-rays and even had a bone specialist look at it to see what it could be. He was put on a bunch of meds and given the best of care he could get. It has not gone away but has reduced in size. So you may be right. I guess if your vet is convinced it is not an infection then it might just be a benign lump or cyst. It is not dangerous to it, you just need to keep an eye on it. Hope your brother is feeling better.

It can be an infection, but it can also be a tumour or a fracture. If you want to put him on pain medication, I don't think there's any harm in it. However, if he's in pain and is feeling it in your hand, it may not be necessary, and you could wait until you are at the vet.

I think I will just wait until I take him to the vet in a few days and see what they think.

You're right, it could be any of those. If it feels like it's an infection, then you don't want to wait to go to the vet for treatment, but the good thing about dogs is that if you give them meds, they will probably recover quickly, so even if it is an infection, it won't be a big problem. I just think it's better to take him to the vet right away if there's a reason to think it's a problem.

My brother-in-law has a tumour on his back left leg, his vet thought it could be a haematoma (a type of blood clot) or he could have something else but that it would get bigger if they just waited. His vet thought he would need to have it removed. I would be concerned and take him to the vet before it gets worse. I hope it isn't cancer.

It could be an infection. In that case, the sooner you take it to the vet the better. But you should definitely take it to the vet even if the vet thinks it's just a simple infection, even if it feels okay in your hand.

I can't imagine a cancer would make a back leg lumpy and painful. That's just the opposite of what would happen with a cancer. The only way to tell for sure is to have it checked.

Thanks, all, for the responses.

I'll probably just wait a couple days and then take him to the vet.

The vet told me it was not dangerous or anything, so I just figured I would wait and see if it gets any worse.

I think it may be a haematoma, I am just wondering if they can ever hurt the dog at all.

When we had our pups they had one at around the same time as this one had. It was on one side and looked like it was going to burst and so my mom took us to the vet to get it checked out. They had to give me pain meds, but after a few weeks it was fine. I am sure the same thing will happen with this one. They can and will sometimes hurt when it is not good.

I don't think I want to take the chance of it spreading to my dogs leg muscles. It hurts bad and makes him cry.

I wouldn't take that chance. I would take him to the vet immediately, or as soon as you can, so they can do whatever they need to, and have the lump removed, if it is a tumour. But it might be something else. I know with my brother-in-law's tumour, we weren't sure until the vet did a biopsy and found it was a tumour, but he wasn't having any pain, so he was really lucky.
