Cat with lump around shoulder blades
I noticed a lump around my 17 month old cat's shoulder blades tonight. It's about an inch long and maybe half an inch wide and its very mobile. I can move it from the between his shoulder blades to either side, if that makes sense. Because of this mobility, I'm not really sure where the origin is - whether it's between the blades or to ths side.
He had his annual vaccination series 2 weeks ago. I can't recall exactly where the vet vaccinated him, but he had a couple in various places in his body. One of the vaccines was rabies. Do you think he's just inflammed? He seems too young to have injection site cancer. He otherwise seems fine. He got a physical exam with the injections so I figure the lump wasn't there at the time. Then again it's pretty hard to feel as it slips in between his shoulder blades and it's not visible.
I'm going to call my vet tomorrow but I was wondering if anyone has had any similar experiences?
If it is a reaction, is he now at greater risk for VAS in the future? Is there anything I can do to prevent it?
