Hello,Thank you for using Just Answer. My name is***** am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.
I am sorry you are worried about Layla.
How long have the swellings been there? Are they painful to her?
How big are they: 2 inches, 6 inches, larger?
A swelling can be fluid (blood, serum, pus) under the skin, or it can be an allergic reaction, or an injury. To find out what it is, we often do FNA, fine needle aspiration, using a fine sterile hollow needle to get fluid or cells from the swelling, to tell us what it is.
If her shoulder joint below the swelling on her shoulder is painful, this could be related to a joint problem or injury.
I have not heard back from you; I hope you saw my response.
Please let me know how Layla is doing.
