Q. My Chihauahu has a growth on her tongue that is growing, doesn't seem to bother her but it is getting larger. what could it be?

A. Unfortunately, it sounds like it may be a tumor. I would highly recommend discussing removal and biopsy with your veterinarian to determine the cause. It is best to do this while the growth is small and easy to surgically removed.
