• My dog has a lump, that looks like a piece of skin came out like a pimple. What could it be? Should I go to the vet?

    Hi Shalee,
    I recommend that you take your dog into see a veterinarian. There can be many causes for a lump like this including infection, injury, or a skin mass. Your vet can talk to you more about the cause of the spot and the treatment needed after they have examined your pet.
