Today is another day, my worst fear the mass has changed. I guess the antinflamitory brought down most of the swelling, around the mass. What I have now is a solid rock hard mass the size of plum and it is deep. I have placed a call into the vet to discuss what next, he is 13 years old I have promised myself NO suffering for my buddy.

i know you're scared... i would be, too. and i know you want to do the best and right thing by krammer.

i hope you get the answers you need to make the right decision.

i will share with you something a receptionist at a vet's office told me once, and it became really important to me in the days that followed. she said, paraphrased: even if you hear the worst, it doesn't necessarily mean the worst will happen. just keep believing in the best.

and that was important b/c that vet had diagnosed my barnaby with kidney failure... but when i took him to the vet specialist for a second opinion, i found that barnaby really had a stomach ulcer that was causing his kidneys to work harder and his kidney tests to skew. he wasn't in renal failure at all.

we treated him for the ulcer and put him on a vitamin to help his kidneys, and here he is almost a year later, my boy sleeping on the couch.

that is not to say i want to give you false hope... krammer might really be in trouble. just try to keep things in perspective, it might not be as bad as what you are suspecting right now.

good luck! i so feel for you right now... i know the fear and the awful feeling in your stomach when you know that they're in pain!

My yellow labrador has two unilateral swollen dime sized soft bumps on top of her head above her ears, like litlle horns. She's not acting sick at all-I'm wondering if they could be lymph nodes in that area??? My vet didn't seem to think so-anyone have any ideas???

Those aren't lymph nodes. I have no idea what they could be though. Could she have hit her head on something?

hi, gretchen -- welcome to the board!

don't think dogs have lymph nodes above their ears, so not sure what would be causing the bumps. barnaby sometimes gets little knots about his eyes from rubbing his face in the carpet... darn dog! maybe something similar?

did your vet have any ideas at all?

My llaso had a bout of coughing a couple of months back...so bad that he kept me up all night for days...figured it was kennel cough after talking to vet...after antibiotics coughing cleared up...shortly after noticed 2 small lumps on each side under his neck but he seemed to be fine...2 more lumps appeared after awhile just above the first 2 lumps just under his ears...still seemed to be fine...then I noticed 2 more under his armpits...has been sluggish and not himself now for about a week...eating and drinking but less and less each day...has resultingly lost weight...still not himself

I am trying to figure out if I am feeling swollen lymph nodes in my dog's neck of if I'm just feeling his collar bone?? I know this might seem weird, but he is an older dog and therefore some of his bones protrude somewhat since he has lost some muscle mass.
