Hi there, sorry to hear about Zeus!! If he does indeed have an abscess between his forelimbs, it will need to be lanced (ruptured) and flushed out with antibiotic solution, and Zeus will likely need to be started on antibiotics and pain medications. If it is an abscess, it is not likely something you can manage at home.

There are other possibilities, such as a bit of swelling or a cyst. Your vet can likely differentiate for you and let you know whether or not it needs to be lanced. In the meantime, I would recommend warm-packing it if he will let you. This helps bring bloodflow to the area to help it heal. The easiest way to warm pack is to fill a sock with uncooked rice and warm it up in the microwave until it is warm, but comfortable on the inside of your forearm.

I hope that helps. Please let me know what other questions you have.

Dr. Paul
