bump???

Kahlua has a bump on her nose, and it's getting bigger by the day. When we took her to the vet Thursday for a follow-up appointment, we mentioned it to the vet and she said that it looked like it was just her nose forming into it's supposed-to-be shape, but to watch it and call her if it gets bigger.

Since Thursday, it's gotten bigger! We've googled "dog bumps on nose" and found a couple things about it...it could be cryptococcosis (a fungal infection carried in bird poop that affects the nasal cavities and causes a "nodule" on the nose), a foreign object that has gotten lodged inside her nose and is now infected, a skin syst, or a tumor!! :*(

We're going to take her back to the vet this week and ask if they can do an x-ray, or tap into it or something that will confirm exactly what it is. And if they still insist it's nothing, we're going to get a second opinion cause that's just not natural, and it's growing at such a rapid pace. She's eating, drinking and pooping just fine. And she plays just as hard as ever, so I don't think it's something that's too compromising to her health, or if it is hopefully we've caught it early.

At first we thought it might just be that she bumped her nose, cause she's such a clumsey goofball, but it's been 2 weeks now since we first noticed it, and it's just gotten bigger and bigger.

This was about a little over a week after we got her, see no bump! This was the middle of April.

This was almost a week ago, the bump is prominant but not as huge as it is now.

This is the bump tonight, big and ugly!

I hope it's just something stupid, like her nose just being crazy bumpy or a little infection. But I wanted to show you guys pics cause it's just so weird!
