    My 11 year old lab has develped an red longish lump under one nipple. He had been chewing it and it got infected. The vet felt it may have been a grass seed or some irritant which had gone under the skin and he had caused a lick sore. A course of antibiotics later the skin is healed but the lump is still there. It now looks like a scar. It doesnt appear to be annoying him anymore and he seems his usual self.

    I am loathed to take another trip to the vets as he has been lots of times recently for kennel cough, his heart condition and his arthritis. Of course i will if needs be but wondered if anyone knew if this was maybe an ageing thing or if anyone has had something similar with their dog?
    Thanks
