tknafox2 All the V's I have known as Pups.... grow into their head bump... is sapose to be a sign of intelligence... so I've heard.

Zeke's Head bump grew a Mohawk... Go figure, but he is a WH....
Max is smooth with a big head bump, but he was so skinny... once he muscled up, his head bump just vanished....

I also think it is an age thing... puppies = goofy head bumps... mature dogs... look normal...

Just saying!

That's my plan. We're heading to the vet soon for tick medication anyways so I'll bring it up then.

cytology=nearly 100% RBC, few small lymphocytes with a granular background
Hoping it's nothing serious. Sending prayers and positive vibes.

jdog6973 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.

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.

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

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