So, this is my first post on here but I figured I’d ask about something I noticed on my sweet girl, Venus. I got Venus with her sister, Neptune, last April from a local pet store. Yes, I know to try to avoid pet stores but it was a mom and pop store so I felt a little safer getting my girls from there. Venus is about a year old now and I lifted her up last week and noticed a small pea sized bump very low on her belly next to one of her nips. She seemed to have little white dots on the tip of that nipple and the one above. The little lump was pink and looked a little tender which is what initially made me believe she got into a scuffle with a cagemate. I’ve been keeping an eye on it and she seems to be her usual self but in her back legs she’s a little unbalanced. The lump has grown a little bit since last week. I’ve had experience with abscesses as her sister had one behind one of her ears back in the fall. Could this be a cyst or abscess? Maybe even a blocked milk duct? I really don’t want it to be a tumor but I’m coming to terms with the reality that it might be. Any thoughts?
