Customer Question

Hi There, I just noticed a red lump under the flap of my dog's ear and I'm trying to determine if I need to take him in to be seen immediately.
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Some lumps are serious and some aren't. Let's see what the Veterinarian has to say. What is the dog's name and age?
Customer: Nelson. He's an 8-year-old lab mix. I have a photo of the lump; is there a way I can share it?
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Nelson?
Customer: He has a congenital heart defect (restricted artery through which blood is pumped from the heart), and has been taking atenolol for about 6 years for this
