Hello and thank you for your question. I am a Veterinary Nurse with over 15 years experience and I have assisted in the care of many pets with this particular medical concern. It would be my pleasure to assist you today. Is it possible for me to obtain some additional information from you about your companion?1) What breed of dog is Buddy? 2) Do you have a picture of the swelling? 3) Any idea where the two spots have come from?
