We lost our first beagle to lymphoma five years ago. Now our Benji whom we adopted in June has slightly enlarged neck lymph nodes, I discovered while checking him on Wednesday. I immediately brought him to the vet to have them checked out. He said he didn't think it was lymphoma and I am to have Benji rechecked in another two weeks. Being a nurse and a pessimist I always think the worst! Now I'm constantly checking his neck and obsessing! Thanks for listening.

Thanks so much. It seems we have had bad luck. Our second beagle had another form of cancer and was put to rest last year. I would feel jinxed if Benji had cancer. I'm trying to stay positive! I trust our vet and that reassures me.

I think we are all worriers when it comes to our beagle babies, and being a nurse (I'm one too) doesn't help when we know what we know. I hope everything turns out alright, and will keep Benji (and you!) in thought! Be sure and keep us updated!

We are here to listen, and even do a little more if we can. Poor you for being so worried about little Benji. I'm sure he'll be okay.

Keeping fingers and paws crossed

Thank you all for your good thoughts and concern! Benji is acting normal and has that beagle appetite that won't let up! I'm praying everything will be okay. When I see the vet on the 18th, I may just ask for a lymph node biopsy to make sure all is well. That way our minds will be at rest.
