I have a 9 year...
I have a 9 year old Beagle mix (male). I'm not familiar with dogs so I'm not sure if it is normal if the sides of his jaw, near the back and under the eye (cheek?) is supposed to feel like a hard lump.
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 beagle's name?
Customer: Jake
JA: Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about Jake?
Customer: He eats dry food/treats without a problem and he's adopted.

I am sorry to hear you are worried about your Beagle mix dog.

If the lumps you feel are the same on both sides, it might be enlarged lymph nodes. The largest tooth in a dog's mouth sits on the cheeks, below the eye, so he could have an infection or tartar on those teeth. I would have your veterinarian feel these lumps, check his teeth and his lymph nodes. Enlarged lymph nodes can also be a sign of tooth disease. Let me know what other questions you have about him.
