Dianne Williams. My 14 year old Shih Tzu
has very swollen glands in his neck. He's being treated with amoxicillin
for 6 days and have reduced in size considerably. My vet said it could be blocked salivary glands, infection, or possibly lymphoma
. He didn't have a temp and feels great - no changes other than the swelling in the neck. I'm going back to the vet Thurs, but was just researching some previous answers here.
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: the vet checked other lymph nodes, but didn't feel anything. The swelling in the neck reached up near the ear
and down in the throat and the glands were swollen big enough to fill my palm! Since the antibiotics, I only feel swelling in the gland, and it has reduced in size since the meds. Seiko (my dog) has never had any major health issues, and nothing like this ever. I'm just worried.
JA: OK got it. Last thing — Dog Veterinarians generally expect a deposit of about $19 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.
