swollen lymph node in neck
Posted 08 October 2009 - 06:38 PM
Monday night he was playing in the grass and shortly after coing in, he began to lick and chew at his feet. Tuesday morning he had gop in his eyes, which he hasn't had for 2months ( on a med for dry eye). Then yesterday when I came home from work, his right node on his neck was swollen. I took him to the vet (new to us; had to change due to old vet made Cooper very sick this ummer.) New vet very unfriendly- said very little. Gave him an anitbiotic and said he wanted to see again Sat. to see if the swelling has gone down. I asked if it could be allergies, he said no. More likely an infection of some kind and that sometimes only one node becomes infected. Of course, my brain is on over drive and I am concerned about cancer. He said he thought he was too young; but he wasnt at all reassuring.
Have any of your pups had swollen lymph nodes with allergies? The vet did not check his others, but I did and do not feel anything. Any insight you can give me would be great. He is eating and playing normally. But I am still concerned.

My Molly had allergies but she never had any swollen nodes anywhere, I think I'd be trying another vet if it were my dog.
Let's know how you go.

I agree with the other though, and I would definately switch vets. Since I am not an expert in canine health I need to know that my vet, who is, cares enough to answer all my questions and takes the time to properly check out my babies. I really hope you can find a better vet who actually cares about the furbabies he treats!
I also hope there is nothing seriously wrong with Cooper, please keep us updated!

Glad you changed to a more friendly vet. Keep us posted on how he does. Did he need any meds?
