Q. My 9 month pup had a "goose egg" on head a few days after a bump. Went down one day but came back up. He behaves and eats as normal. Heat/ice? help

A. is it in the middle of the head slightly at the back? if so there is a good chance it is not swelling, most dog's pointy part of the skull can be felt in this area and it's commonly mistaken for a lump by owners. If this is not the case and it's been several days already hot or cold compresses are not likely to help, it will either disappear spontaneously within a couple weeks or will need to be checked by a vet.
