There is a huge lump on my dogs face! Please help!

I came home from work yesterday and found a large lump on the right side of my dogs lip. The lump is hard. Right now I'm struggling financially so if I don't need to take her to the hospital asap and can hold off until Thursday I would like to do that. Anyone have any ideas on what it is and how serious? Also know a home remedy or something I can buy over the counter to fix it?

This is definitely for the vet.  Your dog may have been bitten by some wild critter like a snake.  If you see ANY abnormal behaviors before Thursday, go to the vet right away. - Blu

She's acting normal. The only time she acts like its bothering her is when I touch it and she just pulls her face away. Theres no snakes around these parts either.

One of my dogs had something similar come up on his flank. It was a little larger than a nickel. The vet aspirated it to make sure it wasn't cancerous and prescribed a combo of oral and topical antibiotics to clear it up. It's been well over a year and no recurrence.

I agree with Blu. Keep a close watch and if anything changes, go.
God luck!
