My male 6 year old J/Russell Has developed a small lump on the top of his front foot. It seems to come and go for no apparent reason however he also limps and raises his paw as if to bring attention to it's discomfort.Having checked his paws very carefully there is no sign of any injury. He is always ready for his walk and generally enjoys good health.

Jack Russell with disappearing lump NEW
by: Frank

It could be a lipoma because those come and go on their own. They are generally just fatty growth but your vet may want to biopsy it just in case. As for the limp, that's a bit more concerning. Is there a way to keep your Jack off his feet for a few days to see if the limping goes away. Do you clip his nails regularly? Sometimes overgrown toenails will lead to limping. If things don't improve I would have your vet check him out to make sure it isn't a fracture or issue with his shoulder.
