I answer questions for the website. I can't help you with discounts. You can contact customer service for questions about payments, discounts, etc. by using the drop down menu.

The only way to really get rid of the smell is to remove the tumor. The bad smell comes from infection, so antibiotics might help. You could ask your veterinarian for antibiotics, and/or apply topical antibiotics like Neosporin. Gently cleaning the area may also help.

Desitin will not help the odor as well as antibiotics but would be safe to try.

Let me know what other questions I can answer.
