Hi,
I was cleaning out the pigs today when I noticed that he had a rough bum, when I had a look he has a scabby like raised lump. He is a 3 year old sheltie male, that lives with another male, they get on most of the time, have a few squabbles but never drawn blood, I will attach photos, an ideas what it is? I will be keeping an eye on it to see if any change, if it gets any worse will be down the vets.
Thanks in advance

Please have it checked by a vet; it looks rather sore. It is impossible to tell without closer inspection whether it could be fungal, urine scald or a cyst that is causing issues.
