Swollen Lymph nodes
Let me preface this by saying that she has an appointment with the Vet. first thing tomorrow morning. I noticed a small swelling in Lily's neck over the weekend. I didn't think much about it since she and Sophie play so hard with each other all the time. This PM I went to give her a bath and found that the lymph nodes on both sides are really swollen. Since she is just 4 1/2 months old, I am assuming that it is just infection.
She is acting normal for a puppy. Plays hard and sleeps hard. Eating, drinking, peeing, and pooping normally. The only health problem that she has had is a moderate reaction to her Rabies Vaccination-golf ball size lump and lethargy.
Since she has never had any lab work, I am going to ask the Vet. to run a profile on her. Does anyone know if I should ask for anything specific or will just a chem. profile and CBC be enough?
Out of all the dogs I have had in my life, I have never had one with swollen lymph nodes. It is always a learning experience.
