Min Pin: has scabs and sores around her mouth..glands..more than usual

This answer was rated:

My Min Pin puppy has scabs and sores around her mouth and very swollen glands in her neck. I have an appointment for her tomorrow at her vet but should i take her in for an emergency visit. She also feels very hot in her armpits much more than usual.
This might be a an immune system problem called juvenile cellulites or puppy strangles.

As long as she is eating and drinking and pottying OK for you then waiting to see your vet may be fine. If she seems lethargic, won't eat or drink, and appears really ill then I'd see the vet today if you can.
Hope this helps you!
