Hi there,
Thank you for your question regarding your 7 year old Rotty, Magnum who has swollen lymphnodes. I put an answer together for you, I am going to need a little more info about Magnum:
- When did you first noticed these enlarged lymph nodes?
- What treatment is Magnum currently on? Is your veterinarian aware of the lymphnode enlargement?
- What diagnostics tests (if any) has your veterinarian done on your boyo?
Once you get back to me, I will start typing up my response. Thanks for this and I look forward to hearing from you shortly.

Enlarged Lymph nodes are serious. they can indicate a fulminant infection or possibly cancer.
Ask your vet to do a Lymph node aspirate and a CBC.
the first thing you need to do is rule out Lymphoma or another cancer in the lymph nodes.
Then, if that is negative, a fungal screen to check for fungal infection.
