Last Monday, mom noticed I had foamy drool coming out of the side of my mouth. The next couple of days after that, I yelped when eating treats. On Thurs, I was yelping when I tried to eat my breakfast. Mom called the vet and brought me in. The vet didn't think that it was my teeth because although I have some tartar , it is not enough to give me that much pain. She gave me antibiotics and said to come back in a week if they didn't work. She also gave me painkillers, but Mom only used one ( the vet said to only use it if needed). At first mom thought that there was swelling from my mouth but then she found a lump on my neck. She figured out it was my lymph nodes. She spent a worry filled weekend of "What if?" She revisited some decisions she thought she had made regarding me and any serious illness. She came back to the same conclusions. Let's just say that physical pain is not the only suffering and I am a horrible patient. The car and the vet stress me out A LOT. The good news is, the foamy drool is gone, the swelling appears to have gone down and I woke her up at 6am to go outside this morning, as per usual bol. I will be sorry when the antibiotics are done, because they are very tasty. Mom is just happy that they seem to be working.
