How old is your puppy? There is the possibility of juvenile cellulitis which is also known as puppy strangles. Very serious but treatable if caught in time. Please have your puppy checked by a vet ASAP.

What did the vet say?

He is 8 months old. He had swollen lymph nodes once before that we noticed and the one vet said it was probably due to his allergies. Lately we've been seeing a holistic vet so I just gave her a call and it gives her a bit of a concern. She's going to sneek him in quickly this evening as she wants to check them and his tonsils.

I think it is a very good idea that you are taking him in. It could be something minor and easily treatable or something much more serious. Please keep us updated.
