Puppy with lump under jaw
My shih tzu puppy which is 5 months old,has a lump under jaw it is soft.is it a tumor.
Do this breed get things like tumors??
Unfortunately I'm not a veterinarian and can only guess at what could be causing this lump.
As it's under her jaw it could be a swollen lymph node that you're feeling. This can happen as a result of infection, either in the mouth or even in her ear.
Or it's possible that it's a cyst of some kind. At this age, I doubt that it's anything malignant or really nasty, most likely a sebaceous cyst or something similar.
However, only your vet can make an accurate diagnosis so I suggest that you have your pup checked out by your veterinarian as soon as you can. If any treatment is needed then it can be done, and otherwise at least you've put your mind at rest.
Best of luck.
