She was seen by two vets and had X-rays taken by both. The second vet consulted the veterinary dept at the University of TN. While hard and "bony" feeling, it did not show up on X-rays & ended up being about the size of a baseball cut in half. My husband started calling her a "unicorn". General consensus was that the original injury caused an "exuberant growth of tissue" in response. As of today, her head is back to it's original rather inelegant shape....the lump went away and the only sign of the original injury is a small depression under her eye. Never bothered her at all, tho I can't say the same for me. Good luck!
Wow that's crazy!! I'm glad it finally went away. I really hope his does the same but if not ill be ok with it. I'm just so glad it wasn't anything more than that. We are going to keep monitoring it for the next couple of months and do X-rays often since my vet can do them at the house and they are very inexpensive. Thanks everyone for the well wishes!
