Bugg Butt Bump

Ugh. The bugg is CONSTANTLY giving me problems without meaning to! First it was the lip bump from whatever sting that was. Now today it's the bugg's butt bump.

CAUTION: BUGG BUTT PHOTOS COMING UP!!! RATED ND-3!!! (No Dogs Under 3 Years of Age!!!!) Seriously though... sorry for the butthole shots.

Yea Bugg really didn't want to show you this. But anyways, she's had this tiny white symmetrical bump next to her butthole since we got her. Today she had some #2 stuck to her booty and I had to help her get it off. When we got inside she was scooting, and I assumed (since she's NEVER done it before) that it was because of a little residual poopy. I went to get at it with a paper towel and noticed her white bump was bigger and inflamed.

It's now the size of an eraser head. Before it was much smaller, about 1/3 the size. It seems to have gone back down a bit, but I have no idea what it could be! She has an appointment for a booster on Thursday, so we will just ask about it then.

Any ideas for us? Or similar experiences? Or ways to make all Dixie Bugg's bumps happen during non-emergency hours so we can take her right to the vet? This must be karma for her threatening to do mission: buggpossible.

oh my. i've not encountered that. My guess would be some type of infection has set in and that she needs to go to the vet ASAP

It looks exactly like Salinger's "zit" thing that he had that turned out to be an infected follicle that became infected with staph (much less of a big deal than it sounds). Doc gave us some expensive cream and an antibiotic tablet for 10 days and all was fine in about a week.

Of course I'm no doctor and it IS hard to tell from a picture....but that's what it looked like to me. Good luck and let us know what they say about her tushie when you take her in.

Get that checked out. It could be a mast cell tumor (cancer). Your vet can do a FNA (fine needle aspirate) and send it to the lab to see if it is anything to worry about. Two of my pugs breed these mast cells. My boy Winston recently had one removed. You can check it out here to see what his looked like. http://preppypugs.blogspot.com/2008/07/winstons-little-friend.html

I hope it is nothing serious!
