Ask a Dog Vet and Get Answers to Your Dog Health Questions
Hello my name is***** and I am a licensed veterinarian with over 9 years of experience. I am hoping to help you with your pet today. Since I can’t physically exam your pet, I may need to respond with several follow up questions so I can best help you. Remember there is no limit on how many questions you can ask to in order to clarify any information I have provided regarding your pet. I just have a few initial questions to ask to gather some more information if you don’t mind? How long has the lump been there for?
Thanks for the additional information . How did she hurt the leg? It is not recommended that you prick the mass because there is a chance that it can get infected. By placing a needle in the mass you may introduce bacteria in the area which could lead to a bigger issue.
You can try to apply a warm compress on the area to see if it helps to shrink it . But otherwise the pressure would have to be relieved in a sterile manner to avoid an infection
Let me know if you have any other questions
