YourPetVet :

Hello, I recommend that you have your vet take a look at the lump and the wound it caused for proper treatment. In the meantime you can apply a warm compress to the wound and cover it with Neosporin. I would not continue to squeeze it until your vet can take a look at it

Yes, I know that I should take him to a vet, that is why I paid for this service. Since its the middle of the night and all, I was hoping for specific info. Thanks for the generic info.

I just upset, but I did think this was going to a litle more productive.

"Please click ACCEPT if you found my answers helpful. I am a licensed veterinarian but legally I cannot diagnose conditions or prescribe medications without performing a physical exam. Therefore the above is for information only." this would have been great to see before I paid my $. It's not your fault, it's the law. I am just at the end of my rope and funds.

I would like to know what could casue this. I have researched it and believe it is a hematoma caused by rough play between the daschund and basset hound. I would like to know if I can give him baby tylenol for tonight. Would the fact that no puss was present when the hematoma bust be a good thing?
