Fernando seems to have some puffy area between his right leg and his neck. I have circled the area in black and red. When he walks you can see it, but sometimes when he turns it disappears. I'm very confused and don't know whether to make a vet appointment or not. I thought that I'd ask the experts first since a lot of you know more than a few vets I've visited. :) It is not hard to the touch. Candy

Here's the first one. The part that concerns me is circled in black.

This time it is circled in red.

Now that he turned his head it seems to be gone.

From the pics I see here...looks like a fat reserve :D (polite way of saying he is a little tubs and looks fantastic :p) He looks good to me...I would not worry about it as I don't see a problem....does he favor that leg any differently than usual?

Did Houdini flip him by using that area at all?

I noticed this area this week. Houdini did flip him but I'm not sure if it was this area he used. I don't see any marks, but know that it doesn't look right to me. I am thinking that it has to do with their fight though. :(

It does not feel like a bump at all. :)

If your not feeling a lump or anything I would just keep an eye on it. I think it's fine.

there you go. if it becomes more noticeable, maybe its time to check it out. for the time being, it'll be okay.
