Marley has this big bump under his mouth. It showed up

Customer Question
Marley has this big...

Marley has this big bump under his mouth. It showed up today. I don't know if it's from a new toy or from biting on the kennel or something else. I've tried warm water with salt. Is to be concerned that I need to take him to the vet? It doesn't seem to bother him.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Strange behavior is often perplexing. I'm sure the Veterinarian can help you. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the dog?

No I gave him a Benadryl
