Get Your Dog Care Questions Answered by Experts
My name is ***** ***** I have been a Vet tech for 30+ years. I would love to assist you.
The dog will need some pain medication and the Vet will need to deal with the tumor. I see you have $500 toward what you need. There is a service called Care Credit that finances Vet visits. It is specifically geared for Pets needs. I will give you the link for them. They will set up a credit card for you to use for the balance of what is needed and you can make payments monthly. This situation warrants the dog being seen asap. This is the Care Credit link where you can apply online: http://www.carecredit.com/vetmed/
In the mean time please mix some Betadine and warm water and irrigate the tumor with the solution. It will help disinfect the area and help keep the bacteria down. You can also take a tube sock and cut the toe off to make a dressing for the area and use some tape around the sock to hold it in place. Please have the dog seen asap.
