Dog Nipple Tumor
My dog has his left nipple#1 with an out growth, there is not a palpable mass within the breast tissue, no painful. He is 6 years old, lab mix. I am sending you a picture. No important medical history.
Vet Suggestion for Treating Dog Nipple Growth or Tumor
I can’t tell exactly what is going on with your dog’s nipple based on your pictures and description, but I will say that as far as I can see, the growth does not appear too worrisome.
To be on the safe side however, I would certainly bring it to your veterinarian’s attention at your next regularly scheduled visit. In the meantime, keep an eye on the area. If you notice the growth becoming larger, changing in appearance, or if it seems to bother your dog in any way, make an appointment for a check-up sooner rather than later.
