Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Welcome to Justanswer! I am Dr. Altman and happy to assist you both today!I am happy to assist you with reviewing a photo with the paperclip on your screen. Ideally if there is a concern of cancer your veterinarian will need to aspirate or even biopsy the area for a definitive diagnosis but can review a photo if you like as well. If you have difficulties please let me know and I can send you step by step on how to download a photo
I apologize if you are having issues with the site. Sores in general are not going to be cancerous unless there is an underlying mass or ruptured mass that is causing the issue. I would continue the medicated shampoo twice daily with ten minute contact time before rinsing, benadryl 1 mg/ pound every 8-12 hours if the areas are itchy and a photo of the areas so you can monitor for progression of size, irritation, redness and consult with your veterinarian if they continue to grow or not resolveI hope this makes sense, I am online another hour tonight to assist you both
Please let me know if I can be of any further assistance to you both today!
