    DefaultHELP. Neck is swollen

    Big Boy's neck is swollen under his chin, just above his collar. It doesn't look like anything has bitten him. The skin looks loose, like a turkey's waddle, but puffier. Any ideas about what it could be? Can we safely wait a day or two to see how it progresses?

    I would call the vet. If it is an infection or something, you will want to get treatment started asap.

    A very good friend of mine had a major problem with neck infection. He was throwing sticks to his Lab, and one went through his throat, and imbedded in the muscle. The vet at first just saw him, and gave meds after the infection started, not knowing there was a stick still stuck in him. Than things turned really ugly. It took a couple of weeks for another vet to realize they needed an x-ray, and major surgery. He almost died...see a vet please.
