My dog Luke went into the vet to have ear wax removed this past Monday and the vet said his tonsils were enlarged and they saw something at the back of his throat that they biopsied. However the test results won't be back for 5-10 days. Luke was acting normally and I didn't even know his throat was swollen. So I just thought - we'll wait this out, no need to be worried. He is eating fine and is normal in his activities.
But last night I noticed that his collar was tight, so I enlarged it to make him more comfortable. That was the first I noticed anything. Then in the middle of the night he woke up hacking and I noticed that his throat had swollen again to the size of the collar and I took the collar off. Now when Luke lays wrong, he must be cutting off his air pipe and he'll start hacking.
If anyone has gone through this before, I would really like to hear your story dog and what the solution was. My mind is racing to all sorts of horrible things. I would really appreciate hearing about your experience.
I am calling the vet's office as soon as the open and tell them that Luke is getting worse.
