My collie, aged 13-14 has a large lump on the side of his body.

It is causing him a lot of distress and as he is getting old he is becoming harder to move and get up. He wines when no one is with him but when someone is it's like he is hiding that he is in distress. We have taken him to the vets but they ignored this large lump.

Is there any home based things that we can treat him with, keeping him warm or changing his food?

ps. he is on food the vets have prescribed for him as his kidneys are playing up :(

I'd take him to a different vet and ask specifically about the lump. It could be cancer and the best thing is to get it tested. That can't be done at home.
