Swollen Neck In My Grey

Has anyone ever seen an unexpected size in your grey's neck? This morning when we woke up and after our normal routine (breakfast and poo/pee time), I noticed that my grey's neck appears larger/swollen just under his collar. Very odd as he's eating/drinking like normal; although he did hack a little while lapping up his water. Last evening he did throw up a few pieces of his dinner like it went down the wrong tube or something, but that's happened before many times. I'm wondering if maybe he has a sore throat, which causes him to have a swollen/somewhat discended throat at first sight. Any thoughts?

Can you put up a photo? Is the collar getting tighter? If so take it off. Maybe get a shoelace and measure it and then measure again after a bit to see if it's getting bigger?

Actually, perhaps using the word "swollen" is too strong as there doesn't seem to be any hardness there but more like more hanging skin. It's almost like he has a "chicken waddle" that seems to have appeared overnight. Maybe I'm just going crazy or he needs a nip-and-tuck via plastic surgery. LOL... :)

Our girl had a salivary gland that produced a "waddle" looking lump hanging to one side of her neck (clearly from the inside, not a growth on the outside), is it like that? It took a long time, but it resolved itself.

 

Where in West Chester are you? So are we.

One of the greys in our adoption group has this issue - his owner said it was from an intermittant blocked salivary gland. It comes and goes and does not appear to bother him and is not harmful. Sometimes it's full of saliva and kind of like a big wobbly mass, and sometimes it's smaller or even gone.

Our grey girl Darcy has one now. We took her to the vet who thinks its a blocked salivary gland. Darcy eats and drinks normally. The lump is soft. We have her on two weeks of antibiotics.

Winnie, that looks similar to goofydog's salivary problem.
