My 15 yr old cairn terrier has been off colour today. I have just found a large round red swelling on the bend of his hind leg around the joint. I noticed him licking it. What should I do?

I am sorry to hear you are worried about Jock. Will he walk on that leg?

Expert:  Rebecca replied 5 months ago.

I would continue the Loxicom once daily, if he is eating and not vomiting. You can also apply a topical antibiotic ointment such as Neosporin. Keep him from licking it for 5 to 10 minutes after you apply it.
