155639 tn?1251742203 Phoned vet and since he was eating and not lathargic it was not an emergency. Now it is Sunday and his neck area still is enlarged, it has not increased in size and not sure if it has gone down, maybe a little. He is still acting well and eating. Any ideas on what this is. Am I looking at the possibility of lymphoma? Thank you so much I am very worried about my dog and will be bringing him to the doctor tomorrow evening.

Avatar n tn I noticed the last day or so my dogs skin seem to be drooping like a double chin under his jaw an when I was petting him I noticed a hard lump just below his jaw in his neck. Now it seems his whole right side is swollen and now his eyelid is swollen an our vet cant see him till next week. He is a Minnature Pinscher four years old.
Avatar f tn I have noticed a hard lump on her head under her ear flap where her neck would start. It is also has a pointed end, so it comes off of her head up to a point. Any idea what this could be? It does not seem to bother her at all just if it accidentally gets hit or touched.
Avatar f tn Instead of giving the injections either in the scruff of the neck or in the large muscle of the hip, the protocols were changed to administer the injections in the leg. With the injections being given in the leg, if a cancerous tumor DID develop at the injection site, the leg could be amputated and the life of the animal could be saved.
Avatar n tn my dog has a lump on the side of her neck...not in the middle--more under her cheek. she is a boston terrier and is overweight and has a couple of soft fatty tumors on her body but this lump on her neck is new. I just noticed it today and its abt the size of a golfball, soft and she doesn't cry when i squeeze it gently. what could this be? It doesn't seem to have a head like an abscess would.
Avatar n tn Sounds like it could possibly be a dermoid sinus, it is quite uncommon and more typical with Rhodesian Ridgebacks but also occurs in other breeds. A couple of months ago my dog had the exact same lump in the same place and we also thought it may be a reaction to the chip. The vet initially put her on antibiotics which knocked out the infection and all was good for almost three months and then the lump reappeared.
Avatar f tn My 6 year Shipoo has a lump on the side of his neck just below the jaw line, that is about 2 inches long. I noticed it last week and at first I thought it was going down but now its larger. I have made an appointment with the vet, but was wondering what it might be.
Avatar f tn A large lump has grown in middle of the back of our ten-year-old Husky mix. He also has large lumps around his neck and chest areas, years back the vet said they were just cysts, and unless they interfered with his normal behavior, not to worry. But this lump on his back is exactly where he injured it about eight years ago. His mate and him charged up the back steps and our Husky fell off and wrenched it somehow, he kind of had an arched back for a while there.
Avatar f tn My 7 year old black lab has a lump on the back of his neck where he received an inoculation as a puppy. The lump developed within days and has never caused any problems. Well.... a few days ago I noticed it appeared to have bled. I thought I'd caught it with his Furminator so cleaned it up and it was 'fine'. Tonight I noticed his hair in that area looked clumped together and I can see where blood has come thru the hair follicle openings. I'm very concerned!
Avatar n tn Hello, I'm new to the group and thought I'd share my frustrations with you to see what you think. Last Friday night I noticed one small lump the size of a big marble located approximately 3 inches under my dog's (Dixie) right jaw and under the skin. I took her to the vet Sat. morning and they said it was an abscess and they gave me some antibiotics. They said if it gets bigger or doesn't seem to get smaller to bring her back on Monday.
Avatar n tn My 5 year old dachshund has swollen glands in his neck. I checked in other areas and I don't feel anything swollen,just only in his neck. Aside from cancer, I want to know if there's any other infections or anything that he could have. He was checked in November as a check up at the Vet's appointment, and he was fine. But that was in november and it is March now, so there could be something wrong?
900105 tn?1241942923 and I doubt that they are related. It could be the type of lump that is related to homonal levels in the body. In any event I would suggest that you make an appointment with you Dr. for a clinical breast exam and possibly an Ultrasound to determine the nature of the breast lump. Anything new or different involving the breasts should NEVER be overlooked for any reason. Regards ...
459853 tn?1283144114 My miniature dachshund Sophie all of a sudden developed a small golf ball sized lump on the left side of her chin right by her throat. She seems to be in a good bit of discomfort but no pain that I can see. She is eating and drinking but she is certainly not her usual spunky self. When she looks at you, she has those puppy eyes that tells you something is wrong. Her breathing is different too. It's shorter breaths like she's uncomfortable.
Avatar f tn I don't associate dogs with tears when they are in pain, but it could be part of the eye symptom. The dog is young and I assume hasn't suffered a physical injury, fall or fight with another animal. So you have that going for a fast recovery, but it reads to me the dog needs some medical help.
Avatar n tn My daughter has a rat terrier that has a large lump on the neck where the thyroid would normally be...I don't believe it is her thyroid but close to it. She has has a needle biopsy and we are waiting on the results and then it will be taken out soon. It has grown maybe three times it's size in three weeks. She has no money, I am footing the bill a mere 400. so far. But, if anyone has experience...
Avatar n tn Hi, I have the pressure/discomfort in my collarbone area as well. It can be felt in the front of my neck sometimes. Often, I feel a lump in my throat but I believe that this symptom is anxiety related because I was put on Clonazapam for a month and the lump went away. As far as the neck tightness (feeling of pressure within a blood vessel), I can't explain what is going on!
Avatar n tn My friends dog is a 9 year old cockapoo, and the other day I noticed she had a red bloody spot in her fur behind her head, on the backside of her neck. The lump is about the size of a walnut; hard and leaking small amounts of blood. My friends not sure if the dog scratched it to make it bleed, so she took a close look at the sore spot and gently squeezed it getting more blood and puss out of it. She then washed it with antiseptic wash and covered it.
Avatar m tn She has remained extremely active and does not show any signs of being in any pain. The first thing I did after seeing the lump on her neck was take her collar off of her. Her collar was on the very last whole available on her collar and was way to tight around her neck. I still have not figured out exactly how her collar had been tightened all I no is I was barely able to get it to move enough for me to get it off her without hurting her.
Avatar f tn Hello~It is highly unlikely like an eye infection could cause a lump under your dog's neck. You need to take her to the vet in any event to have the infection in her eye taken care of, otherwise, it could get worse and cause blindness.
Avatar m tn My 16yr old Schiperkke was backed over by a neighbor on a cell phone. Dog went to vet and x-rays revealed nothing broken,"Her fat may have saved her life". While that is very funny, after a long recovery, she still has a mass where the tire pinched her butt to the ground.She gets along OK but now has poop sticking to her fur,as her tail is no longer inside her tail flap,(Skips don't have tails).So I deal with that. But a year later?, the flappy large area is still there. The Vet.
Avatar m tn Since you are already seeing a reduction in the size of the lump, trama may be the cause. If the neck lump is close to your dogs jaw or chin, it could be a salivary mucocele and having your vet send a sample to the lab for a cytology report will help to determined this. The exudate may appear to be just blood but the cytology will reveal specifics including exact cell type(s), specific gravity and much more information helpful to diagnose this.
Avatar f tn She has an increased level of cholesterol too, 9.8 The small lump has appeared on her neck under the skin. She was always a fussy eater, likes cooked chicken, some dog biscuits (not much), some chicken or beef strips. It has been hard on us to feed her as she can go for a full day without eating if she doesn't get what she wants.
Avatar n tn my 2 year old lab bull terrier cross ***** has a huge swelling on the side of her face/cheek which started as a 3 cm loose lump in the tissue below her jaw b eside her wind pipe..

The swelling is very firm and she doesnt complain when it is squeezed slightly. Hany ideas comments would be appreciated. cheers.
Avatar n tn I have a two year old shih tzu he has a lump on his back bone and one up his leg,i think the oher one is some sort of meaty thing, but my dad did accidentally feed him fish,maybe allergies...
Avatar m tn I have a labrador dog that has a lump under his neck. It just randomly appeared after being sick, i'm guessing that still considers him sick. He is 6-7 months old and he has never received any shots. While breathing he makes a semi-loud wheezy noise, and when he swallows it looks like it bothers him every 5 swallows or so. At first i thought it was just dangling skin, but no, this is a ball type thing, not major, but it feels kind of like theres liquid inside of there.
Avatar f tn I guess if it were my dog, and I was not convinced about the diagnosis of Diabetes, as being the cause of all of her problems, I would definitely have the vet check her for Cushings..this would explain the swollen belly, excessive drinking, and skin issues, and muscle weakness... I would also have the vet check for the possibility of Hypothyroid. From what I understand, Cushings and Hypothyroid, often go hand in hand. I wish you the best with your dog.
Avatar n tn For the past maybe two years I have had charlie horses occuring in my neck. Or maybe its in my throat because when a charlie horse comes about, if I swallow, it tightens it more. The on-set of the charlie horse I have noticed has varied. I had one once after coughing up some water I had swallowed while swimming. Another time I was playing with my dog on my bed (laying on my back) and extended my head back and a charlie horse started.
