Q. Young male with red hairless cyst look on ankle and panting for no reason. Just started a few days ago? Large dog breed but only 6months old?

A. You should see a vet to chek what is wrong. Panting is a very unspecific sign and can be connected with many things ( pain, intoxication, trauma, high temperature, stress, general disease...) Bump on the leg should also be evaluated. it can be caused by insect sting, resting on the hard floor, hot spot, dermatological disease...
