Forum Rules
1. Here we prefer clarity to agreement. Obviously not everyone is going to agree on a topic; here we prefer to talk out our differences in a respectful manner to ensure mutual understanding and respect.
2. Read the Stickies and Announcements. Each sub-forum may have specific rules which trump the Forum Rules in cases where there may be conflicting information. Read the rules of each board before you post so that you are clear on the expectations of the staff.
3. Respect ALL Staff and Admins. These people volunteer of their time and MUST be respected as well as their word adhered to. They are responsible for maintaining a free, open, clear and organized forum. Anyone found to be openly undermining any official ruling by a staff member will be warned.
4. Signatures: One picture only and no links. Images: To keep the forum looking neat and tidy, we ask that members insert just one picture only in their signatures. The picture should be no more than 200x500 pixels and should be of an appropriate subject, for example, your dogs and their names. Should you need assistance creating an appropriate signature, please PM an Admin and we would be happy to help! This is to ensure that signatures remain a welcome addition to our forum instead of a cumbersome distraction. Links: Hyperlinks in signatures--unless to a personal blog or photo stream of your dogs (like Flckr or Piscasa, for example)--are strictly prohibited. Please PM a staff member with any questions or concerns regarding this rule.

Hi guys! I have a 5 year old female Siberian and have noticed a black mole-like growth near her left eye that is very small, and also one on her paw. I have never been too alarmed but was just wondering if this is something anyone else has noticed in the breed and if it is cause for alarm and a visit to our vet. Any input is greatly appreciated!!! Thank you!!

Anything unusual is technically a reason to visit the vet, but honestly it could be any number of things based on that description.... any pics? I'm sure people will offer advice but in the end everyone will recommend you visiting a vet to be sure.

I had this issue with my husky, there are various forms of benign cysts/growths that can be either surgically removed or freezed with a cryo treatment. My husky lived with one for about 2 years but it would cause minor inflammation in her eye (red eye) on occasion so had it removed when she was in surgery for another issue.

These are usually nothing serious as long as they dont grow to create issues such as inflammation on the lense/retina.

I would visit the vet to be sure. It probably is nothing, like a benign cyst or an ingrown hair, but there is a small chance it could be serious. I would go just for peace of kind.
