URGENT Question

During the last Sub Q drip that I gave my 2 yr old Bassett Hound Mona, the water is holding like a ballon on the side to lower part of her neck. I know that this normally holds around the tummy area but around the neck looks akward to me.

Does anyone have any ideas on this. I tried to call my Vet but got an answering machine. I LM with the on call number they left but no one has called me back.

Thanks for those that can give me any advice.

You put some fluid in the neck? If so, it'll just take a while to be absorbed. There are sort of pockets under the skin and the fluid just stays in the "pocket" until it's absorbed slowly.
