  • ***Lump on Cheeks***

    Im not sure if it's normal, but do great danes usually have lumpy cheeks? the area below the eyes.

    I just noticed this morning that there are 2 lumps on each cheek. more pronounced i guess...

    they are symmetrical but i don't know. can you guys check your danes if they have boney cheeks? near below the eyes. i will post some pics.

    It's normal. Don't worry. Zeus' are getting more pronounced now that he's lost a little weight with his cancer.

      Omg, so as soon as I posted this thread, I just had to check him further, I'm so glad I did! I opened his mouth and there I saw a twig stuck across the roof of his mouth. It must have been there for 4 days he got a hold of some shrubs in the yard last tuesday.
      So the lump was caused by that. Its smaller now. I knew sumthin wasn't right. I'm glad we found it. Hope he'll be fine. He seems relieved.

        Wow! Good thing you checked! Id see your vet for some antibiotics if it roughed up the mouth, the flora in there can get really nasty.
