droopy throat, swollen jaw or lymph, cold symptoms

August 19th, 2007, 01:04 PM
Last night I realized my Great Dane' s throat was drooping significantly; looks like a turkey wattle from the side. He has been a little off, but still eating. Today droop has disappeared then back again. Isn't solid; maybe some liquid but not noticeable. Also, the lower back jaw into the neck on one side is bigger; feels solid, but may be swollen. Any ideas?

I am concerned that the lymph node (submandibular lymph node - located at the angle of the jaw) may be swollen. Either way, the signs you are describing warrant a trip to your veterinarian to evaluate the throat, mouth, lymph nodes, etc...

Good luck.:pawprint:
