Hi there and thank you for your question. My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed, internship-trained veterinarian with 10 years experience in general medicine and emergency and critical care medicine and I would be happy to assist you. Please be patient as there may be slight delays in responses as I research your pet's issue.

How large is the mass? Is it oozing blood, or bleeding large quantities?

Expert:  Dr. Ann M. replied 1 year ago.

Well, at any rate, this is what I would recommend... it is used commonly by a lot of emergency vets and regular vets alike. It is a chinese herb that reduces and stops bleeding, and it can help prolong your dog's life. I would start with 2 capsules twice a day and then decrease to 1 capsule once a day once you are happy with the degree of bleeding (hopefully none).

You can research the cheapest place to buy it online if you like. I would also put a thin film of triple antibiotic cream on the growth twice daily to keep infection at bay.

I hope that I have answered your question thoroughly. If you still have questions, please reply. If you feel that I have provided anything less than excellent service, please reply to me first before rating my service and let me know how I can better assist you.
