Lump On Jaw

Occasionally you may notice a hard lump develop on the cheek along the jaw line. This can be especially concerning to new llama/alpaca owners, but it can actually turn out to be nothing more than the llama/alpaca holding a nice large wad of cud in their cheek to enjoy at a later time. Anything to alarm their new owners!!!! However a lump can also indicate an abcess or a tooth problem, so further investigation is advised.
