Our third Dobe....4 month old male

First vet appointment at 10 weeks, vet said that lymph nodes in neck felt slightly enlarged.....possibly due to ears being cropped.....this past Thursday at next check up....only one still slightly enlarged. Dexter acts fine....full of energy and eats great.....when reposting ears, everything looks fine.....is this anything to worry about?

I truly have no idea - not a vet and don't pretend to be one.

When I got my first Dobe in 1959 I freaked out about everything and was in with him for the vet to take a look so often my vet asked me if we were living in the reception room.

I dragged my puppy in one time with what I thought were swollen lymph glands (in his neck) the vet poked and prodded and asked if he was eating well, playing a lot and generally acting normal (he was) and told me that puppies, like little kids, pick up a huge variety of stuff (some viral, some bacterial) that their body fights off and even those that actually make them act sick often only last for 24 hours or so. He added if they acted sick, then bring them in promptly because it could be something serious--lymph nodes, swollen, anywhere can be an indication of a real problem.

I'm also not a vet but having survived that first puppy and many more I've found over time that many of the puppies I've raised (Dobes and a couple of other breeds) often go through the swollen lymph gland business .

So what did the vet say about the one gland that was still somewhat swollen?

If the vet wasn't concerned I wouldn't be concerned.

ECIN and LadyDi like this.
