I'm sorry that your question wasn't answered in a timely manner. Please let me know if you still need help. May I have an update on your Pom, please?

Tracheal collapse ("collapsing windpipe") is always an important concern in any Pom hacking and gagging but at 13 years of age I also need to consider advanced cardiopulmonary disorders such as congestive heart failure, chronic sterile bronchitis, and neoplasia in the chest cavity. I wouldn't hesitate to X-ray the chest of such a patient.

I need to see that lump to be most accurate for you. Can you upload a photo(s) of it to our conversation? You can upload photos by using the paperclip or add file icon in the toolbar above your message box (if you can see those icons on your particular device) or you can use an external app such as dropbox.com/ Please check that the photo(s) is in focus prior to uploading it.
