First post - sorry for bad quality. I need help fast while my girlfriend takes my pup to the emergency vet.

My 9-week-old female Goldendoodle pup developed a lump this morning and it became significantly larger tonight with black stuff inside. I'm worried.

enter image description here Any idea what this is? If it's a super common benign phenomenon then I'd rather not have to waste my money but I'd rather be safe than sorry.

  • Hi and welcome to Pets SE, could you please include some photos of this lump, thanks.

    This looks like a blood blister, which can form on a healing inscision (e.g. after spaying / neutering) when the surture material doesn't dissolve completely. It doesn't look like your dog has had any inscision, so I'm not sure where this could come from.

The emergency vet said it's a blood blister likely from fast crawling under tight spaces (bed, couch) with her belly.
