Customer Question

Hello, I just noticed my Yorkie has a dime-sized, deep red welt just next to his anus. I am currently stuck at home and cannot get to a veterinarian. When I touch the spot, it seems to hurt him. He is extremely sensitive to it. I'm scared it might be a spider bite, as I have similar welt on my leg.

Welcome and thanks for asking your question. I am sorry the expert you requested is not available. My name is***** am a licensed veterinarian. I am happy to answer your question today. First I need to ask you a few questions so that I can be well informed and give you the best advice. There may be a slight delay between your follow ups and my replies as I type out a thorough reply for you. 1- Do you mean a red swelling, correct? 2- If his anus was a clock on what number would you put the welt? 3- Is he rubbing his butt on the floor?

Nevermind. The swelling has gotten worse. I'm taking him to the veterinarian.

Fair enough.
