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.

 Swollen Occipital?

PostSubject: Swollen Occipital?   Wed Jun 22, 2016 1:48 pm

I am wondering if anyone has had experience with this.

The swelling is not prominent enough to see but when I woke up this morning I pet the top of Kavik's head and his Occipital (raised ridge-like bone between the ears that runs to the back of the head) felt enlarged. It's hard like a knot. He's not acting weird but I know how dogs can hide pain and injuries.

There is a puppy that he plays with everyday and I've seen him smack the back of his head on wood floors while rolled over and rough housing. I'm suspecting head trauma but I'm not a vet. my own vet can't see him for a few days and I don't want to go to the emergency vet if I can help it so I'm looking for any similar experiences.

Did you get into the vet? If he has been bumping his head it could make a knot, very much like when we hit our own head. If it hasn't gone away after the few days it has been then I would make a trip in, but most likely it should go away on its own.

Sorry I never responded. The swelling went down on it's own.
