I have a German shepherd that is 3 years old. He lives outdoors. I got a worm med from my local vet because he was losing weight. That has been about a month ago. He is skinnier now than last month. he is big framed and at the vet the last time he weighed 112 lbs. I bet that he is down to about 90 lbs or less. Help

I have a 6 month old, female holden retriever that suddenly
I have a 6 month old, female holden retriever that suddenly developed a hard, bleeding, blueberry-sized sore on her throat/neck just below her jaw, off to the right. It was crusty and matted, I pulled the crust and matted hair away to get a better look and that's when it started bleeding. It was not there this morning. She is otherwise completely normal, no fever, playful, eating/drinking fine (eating and carrying sticks around constantly), and has her littermate sister, parents, aunts, grandparents, and cousins to play with all day. My first 2 thoughts were a bug bite or a papilloma. I have photos I can upload too.
