Best way to check for lumps on GP

by M Hall

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

Get the dog wet with warm water so your fingers aren't numb from cold water . Then feel and also look. . That works for me on our dog
