A. If the submandibular nodes are still swollen after antibiotics it may be time for further testing. Your vet may be able to aspirate a sample from the swollen area which can be sent to a lab to test for specific bacterial strains or additional causes such as tumors. This may help your vet to pinpoint a medication to treat the specific infectious cause, or to find additional treatment in helping with the swelling.
