Masses on Sides

Post by ddoyle » Sun Feb 05, 2023 6:52 pm

Folks,
Hoping for some help here! I have 3 yo Male GSP not intact who gets these random masses on his side. Have been biopsied by vet and comes back normal and blood work all looks good. Antibiotics seemed to help when they give them. He will gnaw these open and let them drain and then they come right back.....I am open to all suggestions as he is an inside dog! Thanks in advance.

First thing I would think about is awns.

Why doesn't your vet excise them or biopsy them, since they are so persistent?
