Customer Question

my lab/hound mix got a large sort of hard swelling under his throat today that seems to be getting worse. noticed it about 6 hours ago and it is larger and harder now. He is outside a lot and could have been stung by a bee or bitten by a snake, but he was wagging his tail and acting OK earlier.Now he is subdued but still seems to be breathing OK.
