Should I be worried? Swollen lymph node
My 11 year old (approx.-he's a shelter dog so it's our best guess) has a lymph node in front of his shoulder that's been swollen for about a week now. It's about the size if a marble and I found it during a cuddle session. It doesn't hurt him.
He has been normal otherwise- eating, drinking, pooping, sleeping and playing normally. Normal temp, normal pulse, bright eyed and bushy tailed!
I can and will take him to the vet, but my schedule for the next month makes it a little bit difficult to do it conveniently (I use an EXCELLENT vet about an hour and a half away..close to my old dwelling.)
Should I be worried? Panicked? Nothing?
Am I hurting him by not calling out of work tomorrow and taking him in ASAP?
Thanks in advance...
