I have a beagle that is missing his left front leg but still goes running rabbits. He was out running rabbits a couple of weeks ago and came back to me and he had a noticeable lump/protrusion on his right front leg that was not there before. We thought it was just swollen. It still looks the same. It does not seem to bother him when we squeeze it or anything but I am wondering if this is something normal in a Tripawd or not? If so what is it /what caused it?? Any information greatly appreciated!

…wondering if this is something normal in a Tripawd or not?
No, what you describe is nothing “normal” – at least no similar reports from Tripawds members over the years, that we can recall. The lump could be anything…
Please consult you veterinarian for a professional evaluation and biopsy or aspiration. As Dr. Sue Says: Why Wait, Aspirate!

Your little Beagle Bunny Chaser is quite a little firecracker!
Just curious how he he become a tripawd and for how long?
Yeah, ditto the Admin Guy. Go ahead and get the lump checked out. Most likely something simple that maybe a bit of rest and an anti inflammatory like Rimadyl may help.
Let us know how things are going, okay?
