Q. my puppy has knots near groin
and choc milk diarhe
DESTINI R. HOLLOWAY, DVM
A. These knots near the groin area sound like enlarged lymph nodes. This means there is a current infection in your pet and she needs to see a vet for a physical exam and potential antibiotics.
The chocolate milk diarrhea is also a concern and could be due to intestinal parasites or if she has not been vaccinated, can be caused by parvovirus, especially considering the subsequent enlarged lymph nodes. Poor girl needs to have a fecal exam, parvo test, and appropriate treatment depending on the findings if she is going to have any improvement with her condition.
