Hello, my dog is a patterdale and terrier cross I think, not 100% sure. Hes about 10 years old. Very healthy and playful dog. But this morning I noticed a bad lump on his left jaw/neck area. Its not on his right side, just his left. I hope its nothing serious as hes a great companion
Any ideas as to what it is? Have you ever seen anything like it before? Hes not really eating today, and when I try to lift up his lips to see his teeth and gums, he pulls away so I dont want to force it. I will probably bring him to the vet in the morning, but Im wondering is it an emergency that I should bring him tonight to a local vet. Could it be a bruise from getting hit by someone or is it something more serious?? Any help welcome thanks!
Here is a picture of what its like on the lump side of his face, as you can see his lower jaw is bulging out a fair bit.
