Why yes he did! Thanks I did not even think of that. He did get it on his left hip if I remember correctly.
Yep I will call anyway just to be sure, but thank you. I knew It was kind of weird that I had never felt it before as many times as I had rubbed his belly! One of the many reason I love forums like this.
I feel kind of silly thinking to was his testicles....LOL

Did he get vaccinated during his vet visit?
Sometimes vaccines can cause lymph nodes near the injection site to swell slightly. Not sure about other places, but procedure where I work has the injection site for da2pp - the distemper/parvo shot - as the left hip area which could feasibly cause swelling of the inguinal lymph nodes, location would be fitting. Lymph node swelling after vaccines is a fairly common reaction and almost always harmless/not a sign of anything serious.
It's a good idea to call the vet on Monday either way. Be sure to update us

Lol, gotcha and I figured but I just was not sure how they dropped, like a little at a time etc...
Yep just little peanuts right now.
I will call the vet Monday just to be sure. It does not seem to be tender or anything but I don't want to take the chance. Love that little guy!

Um... If you see peanuts, that is all that drops. There is no other portion.
It may be a hernia. I would have it checked.

Lumps near the inguinal ring
I noticed today Silas had a couple small lumps near where his inguinal ring is located. On his left side lower abdomen near his penis. Could this be his testicles that have not dropped? I know they travel through this but was not sure if they were apparent or not to touch nor if they would be located that high. You can tell he has both testicles (small little peanuts right now and upon vet check everything checked fine but could the two lumps be the portion (if that is what you call it) that have not dropped yet? He is only 10 1/2 weeks old.
Funny because he had his vet visit yesterday and I did not notice it until today and I have rubbed that sweet belly a million times.
Probably going to take him first of the week just to check it out but thoughts would post here to see if anyone would know. They are not sensitive at all.
