I am so sorry that your companion has you worried. Can you share a few pictures of your concern to our chat? I’d like to see what you’re seeing specifically.

Thank you.

It would be ideal to see a vet if the lumps are growing and spreading. This could be something as minor as warts (which aren't transmissible to people and typically self-limiting) to mast cell tumors. For good measure, I would suggest cleaning the areas 2x daily with saline, patting dry gently and dabbing on regular Neosporin (not the variety with pain relief). Avoid bedding that might stick to the area. You can purchase an OTC saline solution or make your own at home by combining one cup of boiling tap water to 1 tbsp of table salt. Dissolve and allow to come to room temp before using.

Does this all make sense? Do you have any additional questions I can address today on this topic?

Also, if you would like to ask me a question in the future, you can use the @ function in chat just like you can on media platforms. It will alert me directly to your request and I’ll be present to help as soon as I’m made aware.

An ER vet visit wouldn't be wrong, but this does not look like an emergency currently. As long as their symptoms remain the same, I'd plan for Monday. If things worsen at all, I would go this weekend to an ER clinic.
