a bump that has now become a wound, wondering how to treat at home
JA: I'm sorry to hear that. Is the dog bleeding a lot?
Customer: no blood
JA: What is the dog's name and age?
Customer: opie, 18 mos
JA: How old is opie?
Customer: 18 mos
JA: Is there anything else important you think the Veterinarian should know about opie?
Customer: the bump was hard and there for some time, when i realized it was superficial I squeezed it and thought by the looks of what came out it was a pimple then it became swollen and flattened or spread out somewhat. it isnt hot to the touch but it is sore, she keeps trying to lick it. she is eating fine, etc

Can you upload a photo(s) of this bump 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.

She is a bernese so her coat is very thick, therefore, it is very difficult to get a pic but i will try.
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Michael Salkin, Veterinarian replied 1 year ago

I appreciate it. Without my seeing what you're seeing, I'm helpless.
