|After his big dinner, my partner and I simultaneously noticed Phoenix had a lump in his left hand side, over his last or 2nd last rib. It's larger than a golf ball, but smaller than a tennis ball - it doesn't seem to move, and he flinches slightly when I try palpating it. I feel sure I would have noticed the lump growing - I rub them over and pat them all over their body each day, and I wonder how I could have missed it getting so large.
Naturally he will be on his way to the vet on Monday, but does anyone have any suggestions as to what it might be? The only time he has been not like himself was on Monday, when he ran away chasing rabbits and wouldn't sit down afterward - he was off his food a little that night, but seemed fine once we returned home a few hours later. Might he have swallowed something? Run into/hit something that's caused a bump?
Any help, advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
