Q. My dog has very soft lump on side after awkwardly landing on branch when playing under hose. Wondering if it's likely a hernia or internal bleeding?

A. I am assuming your dog is fine otherwise.it may be either of them (less likely internal bleeding, and not very common a hernia on the flank) or just a soft tissue trauma (especially if very localised). I would strongly recommend to take your dog to your veterinarian fir a quick check up and appropriate treatment. Pain teli ed medications maybe needed anyway.
