Hello Joe, Sorry for the late reply as well, been really busy with work. Bono is okay now, my vet said that the bump was actually rotting muscle strains, he said that it's because Bono knocked into something while running around in the house. That's how the bump developed. My 3 babies are very playful and quite rough with each other but Bono is the craziest and the most playful one, a real brat as well hehehe. His condition is not serious but my vet says that we have to be cautious cos of the virus from the rotting muscle strains can travel down to his blood veins. If the bump was to be left untreated, sometimes if lucky, the swell (bump) will dissapear but if unlucky and it does happen in some cases that the virus will attack the nervous system of the dog, then that will actually cause a lot of pain and the dog will be seriously sick and may need hospitalization or operation. Anyhow my vet gave Bono an injection, antibiotics and another type medicine to make the bump dissapear. It's already been about a week now and I noticed Bono's bump has turned relatively smaller in size. Again, thank you for your concern and I hope maybe this whole knowledge about the 'msytery bump' can be a reference for you and to others. Thanks again! Take care! P/S: Jagger is back to his old peeing habit, oh well, but the cutest thing happened, Jagger saw rain for the first time and he was so adorable trying to wrestle rain by holding up one of his front paw, PRECIOUS!
