i think my dog has a hematoma

hi i have a 1 year old pitbull shes been a really healthy pup and super playful but one day she had a giant baseball size mass on the size of her face. now its swollen, rock hard and just awful looking. were taking her to the vet tomorrow after work but i was just wondering if anyone had any clues as to what it might be or if they've had a similar problem?

Taking her to the vet is the right thing to do. With a mass that suddenly appears I personally woould get her in ASAP. It could be any number of things. You aren't clear on how suddenly it appeared, if she was playing with other dogs or if you have othe animals in the house. Sometimes even a tiny puncture, say from a cat claw (when playing) can cause an infection. I

Also depending upon where on the side of her face it is, it could be an infected tooth or various other things.

Again ggetting her to the vet is the best possible thing to do at this point.

Do keep us posted and let us know how the visit goes.
