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 puppy, please?

Because these lumps are bilaterally symmetrical, they're most likely to represent axillary (arm pit) lymph nodes. These aren't usually easily palpable but may be enlarged due to his infections. Please respond with further questions or concerns if you wish.
