I am heading to the vet in about an hour to have Bella's throat checked. I found a lump in her throat right where our adams apple would be :( I am a nervous wreck. Of course I made the mistake of googling "lump in puppies throat" and found the big "C" word, cancer which scares me to death. I hope it's just swollen glands, enlarged thyroid or a possible allergy that is causing it. She has been acting normal, eating, drinking, and being a puppy. I discovered the lump rubbing her throat as she was having a reverse sneezing fit which she has often. I hope it's not the worst case....please keep my girl in your prayers.

Thanks everyone for the love :) The vet said everything feels normal but she does feel some excess cartilage around her thyroid. Anyways, she then called in another vet for a second opinion and she said the same thing. They told me with the muscular breeds you can feel more because things are more prominent. Both the vets that checked her out own pit bulls so that was nice to actually go to someone who is familiar with the bully breeds. They told me to keep and eye on it but not to worry. Maybe I over reacted but I would rather be safe than sorry :)

PK, I PM'd you back ;) No need to apologize for the late response. You do have a life with a baby and those darn dogs LOL!

Thanks guys for the concern :) if I didn't get her checked out knowing what I felt it would have just kept eating at me. Id rather pay the $65 exam fee and leave with a piece of mind than to pretend it doesn't exist.
