My small dog has a sist and I can't afford a $400. surgery…

Customer Question
My small dog has...

My small dog has a sist and I can't afford a $400. surgery to remove it off his back. It broke on its own yesterday and now I'm worried about infection and I can still feel something is still in there, even though a lot of it came out.

Veterinarian's Assistant: I'll do all I can to help. There are all sorts of infections the dog can pick up. I'll have you talk to the Veterinarian who'll sort out what is wrong and help you decide what to do about it. Is there anything else the Veterinarian should be aware of about the dog?

Other than that the dog is healthy.

BTW, after trying to take pictures, and seeing the hole in my poor dogs back, my husband agreed that I should take the dog to the vet. So I made an appointment for today at the vet.
Dog Veterinarian: Dr. Meghan Denney, Dog Veterinarian replied 7 months ago

I am glad to hear it hopefully with some antibiotics and pain medications it will heal up.
