Rescuing dog - Have a med. question

This forum is for dog lovers seeking everyday advice and suggestions on health-related issues. Remember, however, that advice on a public forum simply can't be a substitute for proper medical attention. Only your vet can say assuredly what is best for your dog.

Hi, we are in the process of adopting a dog from a high kill shelter down in the States (we are in Canada.) We noticed and are a little concerned with a growth on her front, right foot and also back, center near top of the tail. She came in as a stray so there is no history on her. Do these look like simple lipomas or something more serious?

Thanks 45/46333_254631798004061_1306739828_n_zpsb8358f48.jpg

Your pictures would not come up when I tried to look at them. What does the shelter say about the lump? Maybe they would let you have a vet look at it before you decide to finalize the adoption. Good Luck!
