Ellie has developed a hard knot on her snout about the size of a pea.  I took her to the vet and they used a needle to make a small poke to see if anything would come out but nothing did.  So they gave me an anti-inflammatory drug to try for a week.  She's been on that for three days now but no improvement.  Has anyone else ever had this problem?

Perhaps a biopsy is in order.

Never experienced this, but hope things are going okay...............

Meds didn't help.  She spent a couple of days with a sick stomach--maybe the meds.  Took her back to vet and they tried lancing it but nothing.  Vet says to watch it for a while to see if it goes away or if it grows.  If it grows, they will remove it and biopsy it.  They also gave her a shot to help her stomach.  She didn't eat much of anything on Sunday, but is back to eating now.  Still enjoying her walks and chasing the squirrels.  We'll see what happens.

Glad she is feeling better and hope the knot doesn't enlarge.

I have no experience with that.  Only with the fatty cysts they get under their skin.
