Can you upload a photo(s) of this sore to our conversation? You can use the paperclip icon in the toolbar above your message box (if you can see that icon) or you can use an external app such as dropbox.com/

I can be more accurate for you if I can see what you're seeing.

I understand. I'll watch for it to show up. If you don't hear from me in 24 hours it wasn't received by the site.

I did, thanks, ***** *****'s out of focus and nondiagnostic. I can't tell if it represents skin cancer, an eosinophilic granuloma, or simply an area that she has licked to the point of ulcerating her skin due to minor irritation. I believe you're going to need to have her vet look at this hands-on.
