Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.

Expert:  PitRottMommy replied 1 month ago.

Can you describe or show pictures of where these are located? Are they in the middle of the throat? One on each side of the throat? Under the ears or under the chin? How large? Are you seeing any weight loss, thirst increase or increased hunger? When was bloodwork last performed on Tuxi?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
They are on bith sides of the throat like her lymph nodes. They are hard and enlarged (2-3 quarters sized). As explained there is no difference in behavior other than weight loss. Blood work was last performed 3 yrs ago when she was experiencing liver problems.

It sounds like the website has offered you a call, which is a courtesy but not an obligation. Do you wish to continue our chat?

Unfortunately, I cannot see what you see on your end. Experts only assist customers, so I cannot and do not control pricing. I am going to reach out to customer service to aid you since you have questions I cannot answer.
