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.

PostSubject: Bump on the head   Thu Sep 25, 2014 7:24 am

So about 2 weeks ago my little brat of a pup escaped and was hit by a car. She was taken to the Vet and checked out and was 100% okay. I personally wasn't but I don't think Akira minded. Anyway, about half a week later I noticed a bit of a bump roughly around the size of a 5 cent coin. I know that might not mean much to many of you as I have noticed majority of you are from America, but that is the best I can do haha. The bump hasn't gone down nor has it gotten bigger. Should I be worried or should it be okay to leave for another week and then take her to the vet if nothing has changed?

I'd watch her for any kind of incoordination, pupil size discrepancy, drowsiness...but highly unlikely 2 weeks out.

Maybe totally unrelated to accident, watch for growth.

Hope she's ok.

Exactly where on her head is the bump? Where is it in relation to where she was hit?

Many dogs have a "knowledge bump" situated between their ears but behind them - that bump is perfectly normal. If an Aussie five cent coin is even close to a US five cent piece, that'd be about the right size as well.

I think the proper name for the "knowledge bump" is occiput.  Lycus has one as well.

What exactly is a knowledge bump/occiput? Never heard of it before.

Lucy, it's basically the hard bump you'll sometimes see on top of some dogs head. It's more prominent in dogs like labs or hunting dogs.

Yeah it is in that exact spot. Maybe I never fully noticed and was being a worry wart after the accident and then really noticed. Her personality and everything is in tact so it can't be hurting. I don't really know where she was hit as I wasn't there but I feel like that would be more to the side of the head. I'll keep an eye on it but by the sounds of it I am being an over protective mother!
