Do you have a pic of it ? Hard to tell with just a description, are the lumps soft ? Hard ? Do they move around ? Is it like scar tissue ? Are her legs kinda puffy ? Our Belgian had lymphatic problems, and always had stocked up looking legs, eventually had to be euthed do to liver kidney failure in his late teens ;( Can you trim off the feathers, even with scissors, to get air to the area?

Please read this then contact the vet. It could be CPL.

I do have that link on my CPL page, which I sent her.

Unfortunately, Davis is no longer funding research.
