why does my 14 year old terrier have a soft lump on her hip the size of a tennis ball? what could it be? wat should i do
ive recently noticed a soft lump the size of a tennis ball on my 14 year old dog, which is on her back hip. she does not seem in any pain and does not seem distressed by the lump. What could it be? we have yet not seen the vet.

It could be a ligament on the dog, they can get really big and they can come out of nowhere. Does it move? Is it tight?
Considering the age of the dog it is probably a fatty cyst. You may actually find others. If ur concerned take her to the vet for a proper diagnosis. If it's a cyst it's harmless just unsightly. Just keep an eye on the size if it gets too big it might need to be reduced or removed.
