Sometimes my dog's head will feel hot to the touch. What's the cause? This is a hot spot, not a body temp question. I've also just found a swelling in my dog's (5yr old Bassett/Lab mix) throat, possibly thyroid gland abnormality (vet apt. tomorrow to find out). Could this hot spot have been an early sign of a tumor since it may affect the jugular and it's supply of blood to the head?
You are very welcome!
