Good evening, and thanks for your question.
Skin abscesses can be caused by a number of conditions as well as various types of bacterial organisms. I have a few questions to ask you, so perhaps we can narrow down the possibilities to figure out your Copper’s condition.
1(: Where are her abscesses located?
2): Is there hair loss associated with the abscesses?
3): What is Copper’s living environment like (stall w/ turnout, open pasture, etc.), and where are you located?
4): Did the abscesses come on suddenly, and are they enlarging in size?
5): Is there a possibility that you could send a photo or two of the abscesses?
Thanks, ***** *****’m looking forward to hearing from you.
