CriticalCareVet :

Welcome to JustAnswer! I am a licensed veterinarian and would be glad to help!

CriticalCareVet :

1) When did you notice this?

CriticalCareVet :

2) Is it growing in size?

CriticalCareVet :

3) Changing shape?

CriticalCareVet :

4) Has it been tested in any way?

JACUSTOMER-qgam93ld- :

1) last week

JACUSTOMER-qgam93ld- :

2 not anymore but did

JACUSTOMER-qgam93ld- :

3)no

JACUSTOMER-qgam93ld- :

4) just keeping it clean

CriticalCareVet :

The concern here - without a diagnosis, it is not possible to give a specific treatment plan.

Understandably...

If it is an infection, antibiotics will be needed.

If it is a benign growth - in all likelihood no, something topical will not shrink it.

If it is a mast cell tumor, common in this breed, it should be surgically removed.

CriticalCareVet :

For this reason, well worth having your veterinarian examine and test the lesion.

CriticalCareVet :

If it is a mast cell tumor, best to be proactive and have this removed now, before it can either change in size and get larger (more difficult to then remove) or spread.

JACUSTOMER-qgam93ld- :

ok, i will take him in and have it looked at

CriticalCareVet :

Yes - I think that would be best!

CriticalCareVet :
