Most likely this is due to an aural hematoma, which is basically a blood pocket. The ear is tender and swollen, it can be similar to an abscess, but is caused by shaking or scratching the ears a lot. Ear mites, ticks, wax build up, etc, are all common underlying causes which create hematomas. If left untreated it will generally go away, but can take several months and will cause a lot of pain to your pet. It's best to go to the veterinarian right away where they will drain and suture the hematoma so that it will heal properly. You'll most likely be given an antibiotic and directions to clean the ear for a couple of weeks before the stitches can be removed.

Other causes can be due to an infection. If your dog scratched his ear and then dirt got into it then it could be an abscess. The treatment is similar and a vet's assistance is needed to drain the abscess. You'll receive antibiotics and cleaning instructions, but most likely, no stitches.

There are several reasons why your dog may have a swollen neck. Common reasons for a canine to develop a swollen neck include Allergies, swollen glands, sinus infection, or thyroid condition. Your vet will need to assess the overall condition of the dog to determine the exact reason for this occurrence.

I would take the dog to a vet immediately, especially if it was bitten by a snake. Please don't wait. Your dog could die.

Lots of things could cause it; swollen glands are a sign of a serious infection, allergic reaction or, as mentioned above, exposure to a toxin. Absolutely get the dog to a vet ASAP.

You need to take your dog to your Veterinarian to see what is wrong with him or her. He or she could have a huge abscess or numerous other things. Only a Veterinarian can accurately diagnose your dog. Don't wait and let your dog suffer, go immediately.

What can a vet do for a small dog who has a lump under her chin?

It depends on what the lump is as to how it can be treated. If the lump is obstructing the dogs ability to eat and/or drink then the Veterinarian will more than likely opt for the lump to be removed. However, if the lump is cancerous then the vet should be able to sit down with the owner of the small dog and go over all of the different treatment options available to save the small dog's life. Therefore, if anyone has a small dog with a lump under their chin. They should consult their Veterinarian and talk with their Veterinarian on which treatment will/may work best.
