Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Good Morning and welcome! I am Dr. Loretta, a licensed veterinarian and I am happy to answer your question.
Sorry it has taken so long to answer your question. This actually is good news since the mandibular lymph nodes do drain areas of the mouth and any infection can get caught up in them causing inflammation and possibly infection. The fact that they have decreased in size tells us that this is probably not Lymphoma which would be a very bad condition for your guy. If for some reason, they continue to be large, it is best to biopsy so you know for sure.Does that make sense to you?
Please let me know if you have ANY other questions. My goal is to give you 100% satisfaction and if you are not yet satisfied, please REPLY so I can clarify for you.Sincerely, ***** *****
