Customer Question
I just noticed that...

I just noticed that her lymph nods in her neck are swollen and very hard. She doesn't seem to be in any pain but this morning she didn't feel very well. She is eating and acting pretty normal. I am very concerned.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the dog?

She has allergys and is constantly licking her feet. We just had our yard sprayed for flees. Not sure if the spray has effected her. It supposed to be safe for dogs supposedly .

Hi

Dr. Paul Brazzell here

How old is she?

The lumps are at the angle of the jaw?

She is 15 years old. And yes they are just under the jaw
Dog Veterinarian: DocPaul, Veterinarian replied 4 months ago

Okay

I too am worried

I would give Aspirin at 10.0 mg/pound tonight and have her examined tomorrow

They will want to aspirate those nodes and submit for cytology

I hope they are just reactive secondary to an infected tooth or something like that and NOT lymphosarcoma

Can you take her in?
