Customer Question

Hi. My name is Susan. I have a 8 yr old German Shepard lab mix. Very big dog. His throat is enlarged. He has a knot it seems the size of a goofball under his jaw on his neck. He has no energy and barely eats but will only eat people food. He tends to drool more than usual lately and snores slot more. I'm worried he's having problems breathing. I can't afford a pet bill but want him better. What could be wrong?

Hi there Susan,

Thanks for your question regarding your boy Buddy and sorry to hear he has a lump under his throat and is lethargic. How long has this been there for? Is the lump on one side of his jaw (left vs right), in the middle, or is there a lump on both sides? Have you noticed lumps anywhere else?

I will wait to hear from you.

Kind Regards,

Dr E
