sebaceous cysts

Celia would occasionally get one, and it would go away by itself in a few months. But in the past year, she's gotten five or six. The vet lasered one off and squeezed the yuck out of another one, but I think it filled up again. The one on her thigh is pretty hard. It hasn't gotten any bigger, but it also won't go away - it's been at least 8 months. And I discovered another one, very small, on the top of her head tonight.

Any ideas what could be causing them? The vet said not to worry about them unless they grew larger. But of course I worry.

Googled it....seems most sites think it is a blocked hair duct....is Celia able to groom those spots or is she needing help? If you find them, I think I'd continue having the vet check them out and clean them up....

Images on Google....that looks kind of like what Mocha had on her back by her tail. Never really bothered her, so it was left. It was the spot she chewed leading to her infection and surgery....and , yeah. But in hindsight, I think it worsened after my mother decided to cut the hair mat around it (it oozed at times) and cut too much, drawing blood. Mocha's problems started 2 months after that.

Spirite,
My little Border Collie, had a Sebaceous cyst, which I had my vet surgical remove, in her case she kept biting at it, it was on her side, Angelina, has been fine since!

Sebaceous cysts, do often come back!
Generally, they're not something you need to worry about, unless you can see, thats it's bothering your pet, or it seems to be fast growing...

Any kind of a lump/bump that shows up, it's always a good idea for a vet check!
