Q. My dog has 2 lumps on his chest and right paw they're some what squishy does he have lipoma and if so is that a bad thing

A. Unfortunately, we cannot determine the cause of the lumps just by a description. He needs to be seen by a veterinarian who can aspirate the lumps for fluid/cells and look at them under a microscope. From there your vet can determine if the lumps need to be removed.
