Best way to check for lumps on GP

Great Pyrs sure are furry! Ours is about 3 years old and a rescue. I really can't figure out a good way to check for lumps and bumps. Any suggestions? Our previous lab mix was very easy to check and I would like to be a good Pyrparent.

Best way to check for lumps on GP
by: Darlene Hickman

Our Misti had a lump removed which turned out to be 3 tumours linked together and they were malignant.
I found the lump by using my fingers spread out and giving her a full body massage ( not hard pressure )
Believe me you will find the lump, be sure to do the whole body take your time go slowly.
Your Pyr will also love the massage
