    has the puppy been to the vet for the puppy round of shots and de-worming?..call the vet in the morning its not worth the emerge fees for it right now unless the pup is in distress...

    hopefully its just some fatty tissue

    MOst likely the puppy is sick, it sounds like a swollen Lymph node. I would have her seen by a vet ASAP.

    It's a lymph node. Is she scratching fleas that may have broken the skin? Does she have a sore anywhere on that side? Are any teeth sore? Are there any other prominant nodes on her body?

    Here's hoping it's nothing serious.[​IMG] If they could only talk to us and tell us how they feel![​IMG]
