This growth grew to 2.5 inches in diameter in 2 days . with the holidays here, I cant afford the $2,000 surgery. I was hoping to try antibiotics online

Hello,
Thank you for using Just Answer. My name is***** am a veterinarian and will do my best to help.

I am sorry to hear that Luther has this growth. I am also sorry you did not get help from an expert before now. I just came online and saw your question.

You cannot get antibiotics online, without a prescription from a veterinarian who has seen and examined Luther. It is against the law for a veterinarian to write prescriptions for a dog not seen or examined. Will the veterinarian who quoted the price of surgery write you a prescription?

If you have questions about Luther's condition that I can help with please let me know and I will be happy to help. If you are just looking for a veterinarian to write you a prescription, this website can't help you. As it says in the disclaimer, this site is for information, not for diagnosis or treatment.

Let me know if I can be of help.
