Normal Bump???

So Ryan and I don't know if the size of Lia's head bump is "normal". She's 15 weeks and I think she's going through her awkward growth phase and Ryan thinks it's a little too large. Her bump hasn't seemed this big until the last week or so. Have your puppies had this large of a bump?

Re: Normal Bump???

My that IS a big head bump!
I would recommend asking your breeder, as s/he would know the lines and how they grow and develop as puppies (hopefully). Perhaps they can give some insight.
If not, I'm not sure what I'd do. I'd probably hold off on any vet type thing until I had other concerns coupled with it. Such as other signs of head trauma (seizure, shaking, head bobbing etc).

Re: Normal Bump???

I remember laughing with my boyfriend at Mischa because she was a 'conehead'. She's at 12 weeks now and it definitely is not as pronounced as Lia's.

I would do what vizslandobes suggest and speak to your breeder first. It could also just be a hematoma, which is a bruise with swelling that will eventually go away. Puppies are always bumping into stuff, especially vizsla puppies with their gangly legs and growth spurts.

Re: Normal Bump???

I know this is an old thread but noticing this same bump with Ruby. She is almost 6 months. Did anyone find out what caused this? It just showed up out of nowhere but she had quite a growth spurt recently.

Ruby - born 12/24/10....our Christmas Eve baby!

Re: Normal Bump???

Don't want to necropost here, but just my pup has the same kind of lump on her head. It doesn't bother her, and he is active, playful, etc.

She is 16 weeks, and close in age to Ryan's pup.

I was just wondering if the head bump went away? Our 5-month-old Vizsla developed a head bump and just wondering if this is a growing up thing or we should have it looked at?

Does the lump appear to be filled with fluid?
I would guess your pup knocked it's head really hard.

Not all those who wander are lost.

Life is just a leap of faith.
Spread your arms and hold your breath and always trust your cape.

Two things define you. Your patience when you have nothing, and your attitude when you have everything.

No, that is absolutely not normal! Call your vet, call the breeder.

Is it soft? Hard? Some dogs develop hematoma or something like fluid build up when colliding with hard objects. I suggest a visit to your vet to rule out serious issues.

She is acting normal, but yes we emailed our vet the pictures over the weekend, and she is going in tomorrow. I will let you know what the results are. The lump is soft with a hard ridge down the middle from front to back.
