Herndon and my Italian

Customer Question

***** ***** Herndon and my Italian Mastiff has a knot the size of an olive under his jaw-not inside his mouth at all. It doesn't seem to bother him and looks almost like a bee sting
JA: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?
Customer: The knot is soft to the touch, cool, isn't oozing. No excessive drooling, bad breath or loss of appetite.....just a small knot under his chin towards the front
JA: OK got it. Last thing — Dog Specialists generally expect a deposit of about $19 to help with your type of question (you only pay if satisfied). Now I'm going to take you to a page to place a secure deposit with JustAnswer. Don't worry, this chat is saved. After that, we will finish helping you.

It looks red and ulcerate. Are you seeing any scratching from him around this area? Under his belly? Licking of his feet?
