Swollen Lymph Nodes

Hi everyone, my little girl developed some pretty decent size lymph nodes in her neck. I surveyed her whole body and didnt find any more. She just turned 2 years old. I am trying to not go to the dark side and worry about lymphoma here, i know with her age it is less likely. Do any of yall have experience with what could cause this? Like something not so serious? Is it common for dogs to get big lymph nodes? I am trying not to worry.

I'd be making a vet appointment tomorrow morning to get a professional opinion. Even if others have seen enlarged lymph nodes with their dogs, what their dogs had and what your dog MAY have can be two different things. You need a vet's hands on your dog.

Def get her checked out. Swollen lymph nodes there could mean lots of things (ear infection, infection somewhere else, yes..lymphoma). Good luck!

Definitely get her to the vet. Not worth worrying or guessing. It could be something simple - or it could be something you want to start treating as soon as possible. Will be sending you good vibes - please let us know what happens.

Update for today: They went down this morning, i dont know why but maybe a transient thing. I still took her into the vet this morning, they said they thought they were not pathologically enlarged. I insisted on an FNA and they couldnt get any fluid, it just returned blood. I also wanted to a CBC and metabolic panel and results will be in monday, but they told me not to worry and basically ruled out any cancer by physical exam. I wont feel good till i see the results. Thanks for the kind wishes, i really don't know what i would do without her.

That must be a huge relief to you. I am so happy to hear it.

UPDATE: The vet called today and said all of her bloodwork was normal! She said lymphocyte count was perfect. Thank goodness! I think this quells all of my fears.
