Customer Question
Hi there. Large swelling...

Hi there. Large swelling on dog’s neck that receded and is now a large “silicone-like” anomaly

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'm sorry to hear that. What is the dog's name and age?

Winnie, 10

Veterinarian's Assistant: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about Winnie?

She slammed her jaw on curb a few days ago jumping out of car. She’s a little Boston terrier

Hi, I'm Dr. Beth - I'm so sorry your question wasn't responded to sooner - different experts come online at various times; I just came online, read about Winnie's problem, and want to help. To make sure I don't miss anything, please give me a moment to review your question - I am not the fastest typist so it may take me a few moments to type out a response.

How is Winnie acting - any behavior changes? Any signs of distress or breathing changes?

Does it seem tender if you touch the area?
