"Swollen neck glands" have me very concerned for lymphoma. Such a finding isn't consistent with pregnancy. It isn't clear to me why she appears still and sore in her hind quarters but lymphoma can be multicentric - in many different areas of the body. Please don't hesitate to have her vet needle aspirate one of these glands and have our pathologist review the aspirate.

Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
