Twelve yr old Bully with swollen lymph nodes

April 23rd, 2011, 06:09 PM
Hi all, first, yes, he has been to the vet.. o fcourse there is a possibility of cancer.. He will be biopsied on Wed, but I was given a course of antibiotics hoping that it's an infection.. they told me that it should work within forty eight hours and I am coming up to the forty eighth!
Is there any other explanation for his swollen lymph nodes and is it possible that the antibiotics would take longer to work.. the swollen lymph nodes are only in his neck, no where else.

he did have a bit of a cough and has redness in one eye so I'm hoping that he is just sick with something else.

Scared Crappless!

I know it is impossible not to worry, but at this point it is too early to know for sure what might be causing the swollen lymph nodes in his neck.

Sending big :grouphug: :grouphug: :grouphug: to you and hoping for the best outcome for sweet Rocky. :goodvibes::goodvibes::goodvibes:

I've seen pictures of him and he is a gorgeous boy. :cloud9:
