She has a growth on her leg and has made it grow big from

She has a growth on her leg and has made it grow big from licking. Her vet put a cone on her but she is a small dog and can't walk with it, can't go through the doggie door. She is 14. What can I do?JA: I'm sorry to hear that. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about the dog?Customer: She is healthy and the growth is not cancerous, just one of those things old dogs get. Can I paint it with something?

She's 10 years old, well fed, gets her walk every day but is licking her left rear paw to the point of not one but two sores. How do I get her to stop without putting a collar on her?JA: I'm sorry to hear that. This sounds like it might be serious. I'll let the Veterinarian know what's going on ASAP. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about She 's?Customer: No. I was going to give her Benadryl to calm her down so she wouldn't lick. I wonder if that would help.

I have a 5 year old Great Dane that has a swollen right

I have a 5 year old Great Dane that has a swollen right hock. The swelling is predominantly on the medial side of either the distal tibia or the proximal fibula. When palpated, the swelling is hard and immovable. He presents with no pain when palpated, nor is he limping. He has, however, given himself a lick granuloma approximately 2 inches below the swollen joint, on the lateral side. I have lost a Dane to cancer before, and I am well aware that Danes are more likely than smaller breeds to develop bone cancer. I will be taking him into the vet this week, but I am hoping my mind is just going to the worst possible scenario and there are other reasons besides osteosarcoma or chondrosarcoma for the swelling.

Im hoping i get some help. Weve seeked vet help by 3 times.

Hello, im hoping i get some help. Weve seeked vet help by 3 times. My dog is a 2 year old American bully, he weights 105lbs.(not sure if you need weight but im sure the more information the better). He is very active and eats meat first ingredient dog food. He had this, sore on his paw, for awhile, its very sensitive, it bleeds everytime he runs or if it touches something, it bleeds all over the place, the first time, he had it over 3 months as our vet said it was a hystacytoma, and it would go away. It did not. 3 months later we went back in and it was surgercly removed. All wad good and gone for 6months.,,, now it recently came back, same spot, ontop of his scar. Same looking sore, that bleeds, and scabs... Its a little bit elevated but not that much. It still bleeds everyday. Now we tried antibiotics, oral and topical and nothing has helped him. Would you guys have a clue on what it could be :(

My dog is a six year old pomeranian and has rough, scaly

My dog is a six year old pomeranian and has rough, scaly patches of skin on the inner side of her ears. It isn't very red or swollen, and seems to itch but is not warm or sensitive to the touch. She has had it for about two weeks now, maybe a bit longer and I just have not noticed. There is no discharge or wax, nor a foul odor, just these blotches of irritation in the creases of her inner ear skin-but not very deep, though more present like I said, inside the creases and folds as well as the flatter parts farther away from her head.It doesn't seem to be getting worse but also is not getting better. I have been making sure to keep them clean with warm water with a teeny bit of hydrogen peroxide and apple cider vinegar as well as hold warm compresses to the affected areas. (these were all thing suggested to me by a friend of mine who is a vet tech-not a vet though) I assume it is an ear infection of some kind, though I cannot tell how deep in the ear it goes, it seems to mostly be effecting the exposed skin of her ears-which to be fair, is a lot-she is a pom with silly cartoon ears. Ha.I haven't been able to get her into see a vet either because of monetary reasons(like..not having any) or due to the fact my car broke down a few weeks ago so I am just trying to figure out the best way to handle it. If she does need some sort of prescription treatment, are you able to do that over this website? I know other websites for humans allows for 'doctor visits' over Skype or what have you and they can help by prescribing things.Any help is appreciated. My dog is the most important thing to me and I hate the idea that she has to suffer because I happen to hit a rough patch. I just need to understand how urgent this is and how (if I can) keep things from getting worse in case I have to wait a week or so before I can afford to get her properly checked out.
