My 2 year old Jack Russell has been unsettled lately, restless and itchy. Since moving to a more rural area 6 months ago he is picking up all sorts on his walks. He has frontline pro on.
Last night I noticed these lumps on his Scrotum. Seems to be licking them a lot and sitting down rather than laying down. does anyone regognise them as anything in particular ? The soonest vets appointment I can get is Friday and I am beside myself with worry!

I can't help but am just replying to bump this for you.

I am also thinking how grateful I am for my own vet, who has always been able to fit us in the same day if that's what I want.

Sorry no idea, but that's pretty unusual for a vet's practice! I am normally offered either a same day or next day appointment even for routine visits. I'd ring back and stress that it's urgent. If he's in obvious discomfort they should fit him in asap.

Thank you, Missbattenburg x

I think I would be phoning back as well, even just to get on a list for cancellations.

Thank you. I’m on the list for cancellations and they have said to call back if he stops drinking or seems in pain. I know dogs are pretty good at hiding their pain but he just seems to be intensely itching and licking- would I be unreasonable to call back and say I think he is in pain?

Well if you are unreasonable to do that then I have been unreasonable on many occasions grin.
