Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Veterinary Questions
Hi,I'm Dr Scott. Welcome to JustAnswer, I am working on your question now, you can expect a written reply sometime within the next ten minutes or so.
Hello againSorry to hear Wheezer has this problem, however I have worked out an answer for you below.1. Provided this is just a cyst then I have known owners resolve such situations by applying a poultice to the area with warm salt water for at least five minutes four times a day. An easy way to do this is to soak pads of kitchen towel in warm salt water and hold them against the area, this could help draw out any remaining discharge and salt water can be active against infections. You may need to change them three or four times to hold the heat. Then apply the likes of Neosporin right in to any open areas.2. I know this may be hard but if the cyst does not quickly start to resolve or markedly deteriorates in any way then you should seek hands on veterinary help if at all possible. It could be that prescription drugs such as antibiotics will be required or you are dealing with a lesion other than a cyst.Regards,Dr ScottPlease be kind enough to rate my service to you after we have concluded our dialogue, such feedback helps me maintain the quality of my answers.
