My dog has a "bump" in her mouth. It's probably the size of a small ping pong ball. And it's growing/spreading very rapidly. I just noticed it last night. It was sensitive yesterday but today it's not. However I did notice her other side (right side) of her mouth or corner of her lips is going through the same thing so I touched it and now it is sensitive. So it's her left side of her mouth/lips, it's hard. It's hot. It's the size of a small ping pong ball. Her nose is cool to the touch and wet. It's spreading to the other side. It's spreading very quickly. I don't know what to do

Looking for advice... My 5 year old American bulldog just

Looking for advice... My 5 year old American bulldog just had an infected anal gland. We took him to our vet and they expressed a lot of pus. Because he has a bad heart murmur, they gave him an antibiotic and pain meds, wanting to let it run its course. This ruptured yesterday morning. Today, more than 24 hours later, he still has a significant amount of bloody discharge coming from the wound. I am just wondering how long we should anticipate continued drainage to occur?JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Is the bulldog bleeding a lot?Customer: It's a pretty steady stream of brown/red discharge.JA: What is the bulldog's name?Customer: DexterJA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Dexter?Customer: He had a 3/5 heart murmur - they don't want to sedate him or give him steroids because of it
