I'm not sure if I ever posted this here or not, but a few weeks ago Tucker had a grape-sized lump under his jaw and it turned out to be a swollen lymp node. We tried treating him with antibiotics and waiting it out, but it didn't improve and instead has gone up and down in size and occasionally we end up feeling sort of a swollen mass of tissue there . . .
So today he's in surgery having the lymph node and some of the surrounding tissue removed. I dropped him off at 7 AM, and I'm picking him up at 6:30 tonight.
We'll hopefully have biopsy results back in a week or so. Please think positive for Tucker puppy . . . I'm praying this lymph tissue is benign (or hyper "reactive" as the vet described it). Chances are, it will be but this is a bit scary and weird.
