Background information: - She's about 65-70lb and 8-9 years

Background information:- She's about 65-70lb and 8-9 years old.- She's on antibiotics since Friday, as a precaution before doing more tests like an aspiration or biopsy.- For two days on the antibiotics she was very lethargic, but has bounced back today.- About a week ago she was very gassy, was sort of isolating herself (sleeping under a table), and had extra mucus in her poop, but mid-last week she seemed fine again.- We took care of a stray 2 weeks ago, but he was well groomed and taken care of.- She chews on her nails constantly, and she has bleeding/lick spots on her back legs, especially the one with the enlarged node.- She doesn't have a fever that I can tell, she didn't at the vet.- She HAS had her legs wounds infected before, but I didn't notice any lymph node issues back then.- I live at an apartment complex next to a preserve. I haven't found any ticks on her, but there are dead animals like birds and rabbits around sometimes, especially in the spring.Current Issues:My dog has an enlarged left popliteal lymph node. It's a hard object, and has no give. You can move it, but it's solid. It was originally the size of an egg, but seems to have gotten slightly smaller, it is however difficult to measure accurately. It definitely stuck out of her body more a few days ago, though. It's possible the back right leg is also enlarged, but it's difficult to tell, it's definitely not at the same level.The vet said he found that the front right leg, but it's softer, and feels more like a fatty tumor, she also seems to have 2 in that area on her front right, one below and one slightly above the shoulder blade, so would that even make sense to actually be her lymph node?I haven't found anything in her armpits, or groin. She seemed ill 1 to 1.5 weeks ago, and isolated herself a little, but seems fine now. It's difficult to tell if her submandibular nodes are large or not, it's difficult to differientiate them from the surrounding muscle, the vet didn't seem to think they were abnormal.The only one you can feel without actively looking/trying to find them is the enlarged popliteal node.Sorry for having such a long list of information, but a lot of this information seems relevant.Questions:1. What is considered "normal" in size and feel? I can feel the popliteal nodes in my other dog even though she is not sick. Her popliteal node is obviously enlarged, but the rest are difficult to tell at best. You can't exactly grab them. She's a pretty muscular dog, but still has some longhair in places, and some fat.2. If it is lymphoma, how quickly would I see enlargement? If a week goes by on antibiotics and they're the same size, for example. Whenever you google pictures they're pretty much always huge, especially on larger dogs.3. If this is something like lymphoma, would it be possible for the popliteal node to shrink on its own, or because of antibiotics? That doesn't really seem to make sense. I'm starting to doubt myself that maybe I was wrong about it shrinking.4. Is her having an infection realistic? The enlarged nodes are seemingly random, unless she's spread the infection herself somehow via chewing her nails/feet/licking wounds. Is that possible?The vet has told me to stick to antibiotics for a few more days, but with something this worrisome I'm trying to get some inbetween information.

Bella is an 11 year old staffordshire bull terrier. I took her to the vet in January because of chewing of the feet and subsequent hair loss. She was put on 750 mg of keflex bid and a 14 day round of prednisone. It got better but then was back the end of February. Vet prescribed the same treatment, same result. Now it is back again with a vengeance, but she has balding spots on her neck, sides and the folds of her rear legs.JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Have you looked to see if there is a wound on their foot?Customer: I have, no woundJA: What is the Staffordshire bull terrier's name?Customer: BellaJA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Bella?Customer: There is lots... she is on thyroid medication for hypothyroidism, has an enlarged liver and our family vet thought she might have Cushing syndrome.
