Just joined this, so excuse me if I have posted in the wrong bit. Anyway, just wondered if anyone can offer any advice. My lab is 12 in nov, and 18 months ago, he had a "fatty" lump removed. He still had a few still on him, but nothing to be concerned about. Anyway about 3 months ago, he started shedding really badly and it hasn't stopped, its just got worse. At first I put it down to the weather, then down to old age. But this week I have noticed, him scratching a lot. Especially on the top of his hind legs that join his chest that area on both signs, he keeps trying to lick and nibble this area to. He got a bit wobbly on his back end the other day, but seems fine since. Yesterday I felt all over his body and although he has quite alot of fatty lumps, there is one which is quite big and hard, near the area he has been scratching. It's just a few inches up from where the hind leg and chest joined. He is eating and drinking fine, and going to the loo fine. He gets a little breathless after a walk, but not noticed anything more than usual. We have a vets appt on mon pm. But I am going out of my mind with worry has anyone delt with this before?
