Customer Question

Hi i took my dog to the vet exactly a month ago yesterday because he suddenly formed a lump on his left side under his jaw line they gave me antibiotocs and said if it doesnt go away come back, the swelling went away but a tiny lump was left and over the weekend just gone the lump has been getting bigger and bigger again. I took my dog to the vets yesterday they had a look and said they think it might be his glands or maybe an abcess and said if it is an abcess we will have to wait for a soft spot so we can drain it i have no antibiotics this time we are just waiting my concern is i have woken up this morning to find the lump has got bigger again twice the size of an egg now.
