Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Hello, JACustomer. I have been a Veterinary Nurse for over 15 years and would be happy to help you today. I'm reviewing your question right now.
Can you share a few pictures of what you're seeing?
It would be worthwhile to have Rosie examined as this is not a normal occurrence, with allergies or with fatty tumors. The tumors also seem to be open and oozing, so your vet will likely want to utilize a course of preventive antibiotics, may give you directions on keeping the area dressed and also want to sample some of the cells in this area for microscopic evaluation.
I agree and worth having examined. I think you are doing the right thing with the vetericyn. At very least it should prevent infection. The night before you intend to have the area examined, clean the area with a mild soap, rinse, pat dry and do NOT apply the spray. You'll want to ensure the area is well prepped without the vetericyn interfering with any diagnostics your vet may wish to perform.
