Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Altman, Veterinarian replied 10 months ago

I am so sorry no one has assisted you tonight

I would be worried about a few different situations:

- The mammary gland had some type of trauma in which it is bruising and will subside with time but if it turns black please have Smiley seen
- A mammary tumor which can happen in fixed dogs, even male but less likely

You can try cool compresses in ten minute intervals and please keep him from licking if you are able as well to prevent further trauma and potentially an infection

Please let me know how else I can assist you both today

If you have more questions or if I can help in any other way, please do not hesitate to ask! If you would like to accept my answer, please press RATE OUR CONVERSATION at the top of your screen (I am not compensated in any other way). Bonuses are always welcome. Thanks!
