Q. My 7 year old basset hound has had a soft, moveable, grape sized bump on his head for a year that doesn't hurt. It's now covered in old black blood?

A. You should look at taking him to your veterinarian to have it looked at. Be sure that it doesn't need anti biotic and to check exactly what type of growth it is. Just try to keep it clean the best that you can until you can get in to see your vet.
