    My three year old lop, Snoopy, has developed several small lumps under his chin. They vary in size, with the smallest pea sized and the largest the size of a pistachio.

    The vet did a needle aspiration, but couldn't get any definitive results. Other than the lumps, his behavior is normal. Eating, playing, snuggling, etc.

    Any suggestions?

    I'm moving this to the Infirmary.:)

    Did your vet get anything out with the needle aspirations?That is a common area for abcesses, although problems with lymph nodes, scent glands, or cancer are also a possibility. Is it possible for him to go in surgically and remove one? I think you can also do blood tests for bacterial infections- that might be a good non-surgical option, but I'm not sure which types they detect.

    Keep us updated!
