We just picked up our dogs from a boarding facility where they stayed for 2 nights. By the time we got home we realized one of the dog's gland/node behind his right ear was swollen to the size of a grape. They are usually about the size of a pebble. I have not had a chance to check with the facility to see if they noticed anything but we are trying to wait a few days to see if the swelling subsides before we take him to the vet (kinda broke...). Please help!
Dog is a 2 year old male, fixed Boston Terrier Mix
