Herndon and my Italian

Customer Question
***** ***** Herndon and...

***** ***** 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

Veterinarian's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

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

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